I hold a BSc in Biology (Queen Mary, University of London) and an MSc with Distinction in Applied Marine Science (University of Plymouth). For my MSc thesis, I used a visual model to explore the impact of differing artificial light spectra on camouflage in intertidal animals.
My broad research interests include reef island dynamics and conservation. During my PhD, I hope to further explore the morphological adaptations that reef islands undergo in response to sea level rise and for my research to assist atoll nations in necessary climate change adaptations.
Since graduating, I have been working as a Research Assistant for the Coastal Processes Research Group (University of Plymouth), processing data gathered in the Isles of Scilly and using Delft3D/SWAN to simulate nearshore wave conditions.
