I work within the SEACAMS team, helping to develop small and medium sized enterprises with R&D relating to Catchment Processes. Current projects include river restoration, aquaculture, wetland treatment, biochar and cleaning plastic pollution from the sea. My main specialism is aquatic macrophyte ecology (rivers and lakes) with experience in hydromorphology and hydrology. I previously worked extensively on developing macrophyte monitoring methods for both Ireland and Portugal within the Water Framework Directive. In addition I have consultancy experience in Thames Water and Southern Water (Environmental Monitoring/Specialist Advice). I have over 15 years experience in ecological research.
