Postdoctoral Research Associate

 The Farmhouse 

 

The Farmhouse, University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, Cornwall, TR10 9FE, UK

Overview

I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate within the University of Exeter’s Centre for Ecology and Conservation.  My research focuses on the issue of plastic pollution within marine and coastal environments, and it's impacts on marine vertebrates such as turtles, seabirds and marine mammals. 

Broad research specialisms:

  • Marine conservation
  • Marine vertebrate ecology
  • Microplastics and marine litter
  • Trophic interactions
  • Ecotoxicology
