Associate Professor


Russell did his undergraduate and MSc study at Auckland and graduated Ph.D from the University of Washington in 1989. Involvement with a salmon management problem in Washington led to an interest in fisheries and he took a research scientist position with the Canadian Dept of Fisheries and Oceans (St John's, Newfoundland).

In 1992 he returned to New Zealand as a lecturer at the University of Otago. He joined The University of Auckland in 1996.
