I am an early career marine biologist with a particular interest in anthropogenic stressors such as plastic pollution, and their impacts on marine organisms and ecosystems. I work with Professor Tamara Galloway and Dr Ceri Lewis, as part of an international team and project ‘Reducing Plastic Waste in Ecuador and the Eastern Pacific’. Current research is investigating the impacts of marine litter on the structure and function of vegetated coastal habitats including mangroves, in Ecuador and the Galapagos. The aim of this work is to produce baseline data on plastic contamination and its ecological consequences in these highly diverse habitats, as a basis for testing future interventions.
