 Office hours:



I have a broad back ground in aquatic operations management ranging from public aquariums to fish health. Starting at my local Sealife center when just 14 years old I have worked as Curator at several UK aquariums. I now manage the University's Aquatic Recourses Center, provide support to varied research groups and ensure the welfare of 30-40 species of aquatic animals and the associated Life Support Systems.

Outside of work I am a keen photographer, junior football coach and love climbing mountains, especially in the snow!
