Overview

Post-doctoral research associate withing the University of Exeter's Centre for Ecology and Conservation. Working as research scientist on two projects focusing on plastic pollution; 1. INDICIT II developing standardised tools for monitoring impacts on marine fauna as bio-indicators using loggerhead turtles in the Mediterranean 2. National Geographic Plastic: Sea to Source, river expeditions to better understand and document how plastic pollution travels from sources on land to the marine environment. 

My broad interests lie in the fields of marine conservation and pollution. In particular what impacts the current levels of marine pollution is having upon threatened marine fauna. My research focuses on plastics pollution, an ever growing issue for marine ecosystems and threatened species including marine turtles.
