As a Marine Biogeochemist, I work to understand how interactions on a micro-scale determine ecosystem function and how that system responds to change. I use this foundation to ask questions across a range of aquatic systems, from deep-sea hydrocarbon seeps to polar seas and tropical coral reefs. Results from my work inform on climate feedbacks in marine systems, the vulnerability of key ecosystem functions to stressors and future change, and the interactive dynamics between sub-seafloor and surface processes. For current projects and recent publications please see the Science page and for past field programmes please see the Expeditions page.
Integrating scientific observations with policy needs, I work with international organizations to engage with global policymakers and climate policy leaders. Together we review international documents, reports, and scientific publications to identify gaps in knowledge, highlight critical results, and promote more sustainable, informed policy development and implementation. I engage directly with climate leaders and national
As an educator and communicator, I strive to translate the world of science to excite and encourage the next generation of scientists and inspire climate-positive global change. I teach courses at universities and have given public lectures for museums, schools, and other audiences. I work to communicate more broadly with written, visual, and audio platforms, translating globally relevant scientific understandings to society.
