Gavin Burnell

Biography

Research Interests

I am currently Professor and Acting Head of Department in the School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences (BEES), University College Cork.  The central theme of my research relates to molluscan aquaculture and fisheries.  A recent Marine Institute project (2003 ¿ 2006 ) proposed management scenarios for Irish Sea mussel seed and I currently coordinate a Marine Institute ¿Beaufort Project¿ (2007 ¿ 2013) that is concerned with an ecosystem approach to fisheries and aquaculture management.  These and other projects have resulted in over 50 papers in refereed scientific journals, 5 books and over 70 technical or magazine articles.  The latter aim to bridge the gap between applied research and the aquaculture and fishing industries.

Teaching Activities

Teaching Interests

I feel that the main role of the teacher/lecturer is to direct and inspire.  There is so much information now available to students that they need to be shown how to assess its relevance and its quality.  E- learning has its place and is particularly useful for assimilating facts and figures and self directed learning but nothing can replace the face to face interaction between student and teacher when it comes to motivating and mentoring.
