ConvenorClaire Lacey CEnv MCIEEM

I have been working in the field of marine mammal ecology since 2002 and during this period, I have gained experience working in the NGO, academic and consultancy sectors, giving me a wide spectrum of experience to draw on when representing CIEEM members.

With regards to CIEEM experience, I have been a member CIEEM since 2010, was elected to the Scottish Section committee in 2011, achieved my CEnv chartership in 2013 and have been serving as Scottish Geographic Section Convenor since 2014. As well as sitting on the Scottish Section committee, I am also part of the Marine and Coastal Special Interest Group. 

I am very keen to continue as Scottish Section Convenor for a further term. We have a strong and dedicated committee and I look forward to working with them over the next three years to continue to develop a programme of interesting events across the geographic region for our members.


Committee MemberTony Marshall MCIEEM

I am a Principal Ecologist with AECOM, based in Edinburgh. I have more than seven years’ of experience working as a professional consultant on projects for private and public sector clients. These have included large-scale developments, working with people from a range of disciplines and backgrounds, as well as those with purely conservation-focussed objectives. Although I work across many aspects of ecology, my primary personal interest is in ornithology. Although I feel there is much I can bring to the committee, with my background I would perhaps best be able to represent the interests of the many ecologists working in consultancy.


Committee MemberPatrick White MCIEEM

I am an ecologist and lecturer at Edinburgh Napier University. I have been a MCIEEM since 2013 and on the Committee in 2016. I studied BSc Ecological Sciences and my PhD investigated the impact of agricultural management on the productivity passerines. I was previously a research scientist at the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust, studying the habitat ecology of black grouse. I hope to promote the benefits of engagement with CIEEM to students, as well as develop links between practitioners and researchers, since networking with ecological consultants has forged some of my own research interests and collaborations.
