Research interests

  • The natural ocean carbon sink through plankton and fish (without which there would be 50 % more CO2 in the atmosphere)
  • Promoting Nature Based Solutions, e.g. role of Antarctic krill in sinking carbon
  • How climate change will alter, and probably decrease, the ocean carbon sink
  • How other activities such as fishing disturb ecosystems that are important in the ocean carbon sink
  • Blue carbon stored in UK seagrass beds
  • Marine biogeochemistry and ecology
