I am a postgraduate research student based at the National Oceanography Centre Southampton, and partnered with the Natural History Museum, London. My PhD research investigates macroecological (broad-scale) patterns of fish field metabolic rate, using a novel stable isotope proxy.

I graduated for the University of Southampton in 2017, with a first-class MSci in Marine Biology. My dissertation used stable isotope analysis of eye lenses to investigate the life histories of two deep-sea shark species (Centroscymnus coelolepis and Centrophorus squamosus).

While completing my degree, I worked part time as a laboratory assistant in the Biological Sciences department at the University of Southampton. I also have extensive volunteer experience, particularly in natural history museums and on marine vertebrates surveys.
