I am a lecturer in Marine Biology with a broad background of work in the intertidal and subtidal environment. I am interested in the use of sound, electrical and light energy to investigate marine life in situ.

I coordinate the Biosciences First Year and I am Head of the Marine Biology degree program at Swansea University. I am also the academic lead for the University's research vessels I teach a large part of the second year of the Marine Biology degree course, mainly focusing on boat based and field marine ecology as well as oceanography.
