Overview

Currently I am a PhD student at the University of Exeter investigating the potential impacts of sport and leisure events on the marine environment. Specifically, I am keen to develop guidelines to mitigate the impacts of, for example, noise, light and chemical pollutants that result from national and international sailing events, and to work with organisers to use these events to showcase exciting solutions and demonstrate best practice.
