Dr John Thompson

John started with the Trust as Grants Officer in November 2017. Originally from South Wales,  John moved to Scotland with his wife Fiona after completing a PhD in Marine Biology at Swansea University in 2009. Following a brief stint in North Aberdeenshire, they relocated to Dunfermline. After a post-doc in the Langoustine Laboratory of the University of Glasgow John took up the post of Programme Manager with the Marine Alliance for Science and Technology for Scotland (MASTS) based at the University of St Andrews.

When not racing around after his daughters, John enjoys mountain biking and tinkering with his 1972 Series 3 Land Rover.
