Tyson is currently completing his PhD at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (UTAS) on the critically endangered red handfish. As part of this work, regular SCUBA surveys are taken to search for this cryptic fish in the hope to provide the first popualtion estimate for the species. This project will collect basic biological and ecological information that will guide future conservation of red handfish.
Tyson was born and grew up in Hobart, Tasmania. His background is in marine science and biology. His academic interests include conservation, underwater visual census, SCUBA surveys, and photo-identification.
