My academic training began at the University of Wales, Bangor in 1999, with a BSc (Hons.) in Marine Biology. Subsequently, I pursued interests in tropical marine ecology and research in the Philippines and Egypt leading back to Bangor for an MSc. in Marine Environmental Protection. In an attempt to redirect my career to more local, temperate reef ecology, in 2005 I established Marine Ecological Solutions (Marine EcoSol), a small marine consultancy specialising in UK scientific diving survey and logistics and subtidal epibenthic survey by scientific diving and underwater imagery.


After 16 years of working as an ecologist, consultant and scientific diver for government agencies, NGOs and private clients, I found I increasingly being asked to work with people. The human dimensions of the marine environment are being realised as important to the future sustainable management of our environments. As a result I returned to Bangor as a PhD student, with research interests in how the marine environment impacts people, and how people impact the marine environment. These interests lie within my broader interests in ecosystem services (or nature's contribution to people) and sustainable co-management of our environment.
