Current Research

ROV imageMy research is in benthic ecological pattern and process particularly related to both anthropogenic and natural disturbance. I am assessing disturbance-related effects across a range of scales, from megafaunal and meiofaunal communities to individual organism physiology. My research has used a variety of techniques to assess benthic ecology including remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs), SCUBA diving, camera platforms, satellite imaging and vessel-based sampling. Some of my current research is listed in more detail below.


Benthic Ecology

I have studied megafaunal communities from the seashore to 6000 meters in depth in all the world's oceans. My work aims to understand community ecology at local to global scales.

Faroe-Shetland Channel benthic image

Disturbance in the Deep Sea

The effects of both natural and anthropogenic disturbance across a range of scales has also been of interest to me. I concentrated on the effects of oil and gas drilling activities and mining in the deep-sea. I have also worked on iceberg and sediment related disturbance in the polar regions.


Carbon Transfer to the Deep Sea

At present, I am engaged in a number of projects assessing the role of gelatinous organisms in carbon transfer to the deep sea. I am interested in sources of carbon that have been typically ignored in our understanding of the biological carbon pump.


Other Details

I am associate head of the Ocean BioGeosciences group and a principal scientist at the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton. I have run the SERPENT project since 2006. I have a PhD in deep-water polar community ecology from the University of Southampton, a MSc in marine resource management (with distinction) from Heriot-Watt University and a BSc in marine biology (first class) from the University of Wales, Bangor. I am a trained commercial SCUBA diver.
