About

I am part of the Laboratory for Global Marine and Atmospheric Chemistry (LGMAC) in the Environmental Sciences School of the University of East Anglia (UEA) where I am doing a PhD in partnership with the Centre for Environment, Fisheries & Aquaculture Science (CEFAS) aiming to understand and predict the development of low oxygen regions in the North Sea, notably using seagliders as a means for collecting vertical profiles and time-series over specific areas of the North Sea. In parallel, I am participating in the Glider Observations of Variability in the Ross Sea project (GOVARS - PI: Walker Smith, VIMS), where we have deployed two seagliders to map the evolution of biological, chemical and physical parameters from the opening of the polynya to the end of the spring bloom. Data from the seagliders can be obtained on our piloting platform: http://ueaglider.uea.ac.uk Previously, I completed my Honours in Aquaculture, focusing on the ecotoxicological impacts of the pharmaceutical aspect of the industry, at Stirling university followed by an MSc in Marine Biodiversity and Biotechnology (an offshoot of the Marine Resource Development and Protection Programme) at Heriot-Watt University where once again I focused on ecotoxicological impacts of anthropogenic compounds (CdTe/CdS nanoparticle ecogenotoxicity on M. edulis).
