Personal profile


I carried out my PhD in ENV after completing an undergraduate degree in Chemistry at the University of Bath. I joined Cefas in 2001 and have worked on a variety of projects looking at nutrient cycling in UK shelf seas. I am part of the SmartBuoy team at Cefas, deploying instrumentation for making in situ observations of the pelagic ecosystem. I co-supervise three PhD students in ENV. 

Key Research Interests

My research interests include nutrient biogeochemistry and the cycling of nutrients in the marine environment. I am interested in the use of autonomous instrumentation to obtain high frequency in situ measurements for understanding ecosystem processes and functioning in shelf seas. More recently I have been looking at the effect of increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations on the carbonate chemistry of UK shelf seas using a combination of in situ and discrete sampling techniques.

Expertise related to UN Sustainable Development Goals

In 2015, UN member states agreed to 17 global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. This person’s work contributes towards the following SDG(s):
