As the Associate Director of the Bangor Wetlands Group I research and teach on all aspects of wetland science. This includes wetland ecology, zoology, biogeochemistry and Constructed Treatment Wetlands (CTWs).
I am the Director of Marketing for the School of Natural Sciences and write regularly for a number of national publications.
In 2013 I established the Wetland Science and Conservation MSc – the only one of its kind in the UK. I now lecture on a variety of undergraduate modules, covering a wide range of topics from statistical analysis to writing for the press. I am the module organiser of Life in Wetlands, Principles of Life 1 and Science and Employability Skills.
Every year I supervise around 15 undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD student projects.
I conduct research across a wide range of wetland science topics with a particular interest in wetland biogeochemical cycles, especially in-terms of how these can affect ecosystems, the wider environment and climate; wetland management and conservation practises, and Constructed Treatment Wetlands (CTWs).
A former journalist and editor I write for a number of national publications, including the BBC Wildlife Magazine. I regularly appear on local and national radio and television programmes to discuss environmental issues.
I am an award-winning environmental campaigner and have given a TEDx talk on the issue.
