I am Postdoctoral Researcher for the NERC funded Project on Artificial Light Impacts on Coastal Ecosystems (ALICE).

My research focusses on how anthropogenic sensory pollution affects marine organisms in their behaviour and development.

For ALICE I investigate the impacts of artificial light at night on coastal organisms, their development and interactions.

In my PhD I worked on the behavioural impacts of anthropogenic noise on the European hermit crab Pagurus bernhardus at the University of Plymouth (UK) and the Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology (Ireland).
