Dr Ceri Lewis
Senior Lecturer in Marine Biology


I’m a marine biologist interested in understanding how marine invertebrates adapt and survive in a changing and increasingly polluted marine environment.  I am currently working on a number of ocean acidification and microplastics projects and have a particular interest in the reproductive ecology of marine invertebrates.  I am a member of the Environmental Biology research group.

In addition to my research I’m very active in public and educational outreach, teaming up with an educational charity to get my research findings fed into UK and international schools and working to increase public understanding of our oceans.
