Dr Simon Boxall is Lecturer within Ocean and Earth Science, National Oceanography Centre Southampton at the University of Southampton.
I am an oceanographer who has a broad overview of ocean processes, from oil spills to climate change. I head up the science on the Cape Farewell programme (www.capefarewell.com) and have a strong focus on media and public understanding of the oceans. I have worked on secondment for projects for UNESCO, The EU Research Centre, The World Bank, The British Council and the European Space Agency over the years.
In media I have been involved in over 100 documentaries, both behind and in front of camera and have covered over 1000 news appearances for Radio, television and the press. I work closely with public bodies such as the National Science Museum, the National Maritime Museum, The Royal Institution and the South Bank in promoting science events.
I co-ordinate the department's summer schools for post GCSE and AS level students from across the country and am involved in writing curriculum material for GCSE and A level science.
