Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD — email supervisor to discuss availability.

I research (among other things)...

  • Cephalopods - because they are not only wondrous, but they may be key to our future seafood supply 
  • Biominerals - because the chemicals inside help us to cheaply reconstruct the past lives of marine animals and the environments they live in, which in turn helps us predict how these animals (this seafood) will fare in the future
  • Volcanic CO2 vents in the sea - because they provide a window into the future and help us predict what our oceans will look like in a high CO2 world
  • Scientific writing - because currently it is dry, dense and difficult to understand; this has led me to reseach writing methods that will boost the readership and readability of what we write
