Oliver Hooker (Course Organiser)

Works at – PR statistics (Director)

Oliver started his PhD in ecology and evolutionary biology in June 2012 at the University of Glasgow. At present his research is in the area of ecologically driven evolution and speciation in postglacial fish, and how these processes complicate the application and planning of successful conservation strategies, especially in species that exhibit high levels of phenotypic structuring. Some of his work includes studying anthropogenic influences to phenotypic structuring within populations of Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus) as well as investigating the physiological mechanisms that may drive and/or maintain ecologically driven speciation. In particular Oliver is interested in furthering the understanding of how genetic isolation arises in sympatric polymorphic populations of Arctic charr and brown trout, (Salmo trutta).

Prior to his PhD Oliver attended the University of Hull from September 2009 – June 2012 where he achieved a first class degree (83% average) with honours in Marine and Freshwater Biology. He was awarded the departmental prize (for outstanding work) in both his second and third year. Oliver set up PR~statistics in April 2014 with the aim of providing specific  training courses and workshops for people at varying stages of their academic career, delivered by experts in these fields.
