My PhD involves investigating the influence of environmental variability on the ecological performance of native and non-native marine organisms. The research will primarily be based at the MBA in Plymouth and will focus on the coastal marine communities in Plymouth Sound and the Tamar estuaries. The project is both Marine Biological Association and SPITFIRE funded.
