Research interests

  • Ecosystem modelling to investigate anthropogenic impacts to the marine environment including climate change, offshore infrastructure and tracing contaminant uptake and flow through foodwebs.
  • Environmental radioactivity including the fate of anthropogenically produced radiocarbon.
  • Applications of radiocarbon and other isotopes in marine ecology and other marine processes.
