  • I am an Associate Professor in marine and environmental biogeochemistry at the University of Plymouth. My teaching focuses on marine, terrestrial and atmospheric processes and the impacts of pollutants on these processes.
  • My research is mainly related to marine pollution by plastics, pharmaceuticals, antifouling paints, rare earth elements and other emerging contaminants, human health impacts arising from exposure to chemicals and microplastics, contamination of consumer plastics through recycling of electronic waste, and the analysis of low-density materials through X-ray fluorescence. I have also recently seen the many benefits of combining conventional scientific research with citizen science.
  • I am currently collaborating with colleagues from Plymouth Marine Laboratory, Birmingham University, The Cornish Plastic Pollution Coalition, The University of Geneva, Lancaster University, University of Toronto and Illinois Sustainable Technology Center, and I am on various advisory boards and committees, including “Lead Safe World” and the International Scientific Committee for Estuarine Biogeochemistry. Research outputs are in numerous scientific publications and reports, as well as media outlets, blogs and forums.
