2015-2019: MSci Marine Biology at the University of Southampton

July 2019: Marine scientist onboard the James Clark Ross during the Changing Arctic Ocean Seafloor (ChAOS) research cruise

I am studying the impact of climate change on benthic communities in the polar latitudes. My research aims to highlight the consequences of these communities’ response to climate change for ecosystem function.

I graduated from the University of Southampton in 2019 having completed a Master of Science (MSci) in Marine Biology. My thesis involved understanding species-specific responses to prolonged ocean warming and acidification. Previously, I was also part of the scientific team onboard the James Clark Ross during the final research cruise of the Changing Arctic Ocean Seafloor project (ChAOS).
