Dr Gemma Cripps is Postdoctoral Research Fellow within Ocean and Earth Science, National Oceanography Centre Southampton at the University of Southampton.

Academic experience

2015-Present: Postdoctoral research fellow for the UK Ocean Acidification Research Program, Sea Surface Consortium. I work under UKOARP WP9 using a combination of observational and experimental data from 3 different cruises (UK, Arctic and Southern Ocean) to assess if the variations within marine communities is related to spatial changes in carbonate chemistry.

2011-2015: PhD in Marine Climate Change, Swansea University and Plymouth Marine Laboratory.
Thesis: The effects of ocean acidification on copepod growth and reproduction.

2009-2010: MRes (Distinction) in Marine Biology, University of Plymouth and Marine Biological Association.
Thesis: The biological effects of alkalinity addition to combat ocean acidification.

2005-2008: BA (Hons, 2.1) in Marine Biology and Coastal Ecology, Plymouth University.
Thesis: The effect of nitrate quantity on the symbiosis of Amenonia viridis

Other experience

2011-2014: Teaching Demonstrator and Assistant, Swansea University, UK

2009-2010: Marine Identification Specialist, Plymouth Museum, UK

2008: Front of House Host, National Marine Aquarium, UK

Research interests

My research interests focus around eco-physiology and trophic dynamics in a multi-stressor marine environment. I am particularly interested in the synergistic effects of climate change, namely ocean acidification (OA) and climate warming, in conjunction with local environmental perturbations.

I am currently working on the UKOARP under work package 9, which uses a combination of observational and experimental data from 3 different cruises (UK, Arctic and Southern Ocean) to assess if the variations within marine communities is related to spatial changes in carbonate chemistry.
