Biography

2017- current, Research Fellow, University of Aberdeen.

2016-current, NERC Knowledge Exchange Fellow, University of Aberdeen, working with the Marine Management Organisation. Looking at "A bottom up approach to marine management: Marine phytoplankton as regulators of ecosystem functions and services".

2013- 2016, Research Fellow, University of Aberdeen.

2016-current, NERC Knowledge Exchange Fellow, University of Aberdeen, working with the Marine Management Organisation. Looking at "A bottom up approach to marine management: Marine phytoplankton as regulators of ecosystem functions and services".

2013-2016, MarCRF Research Fellow in Marine Spatial Management, University of Aberdeen, in collaboration with Marine Scotland Science. Looking at small scale (meters to kilometres) "patches" in phytoplankton distribution, and how these may be affected by marine renewable developments, such as offshore wind farms. Focused on the Firth of Forth region, off the east coast of Scotland.

2012-2013, Marine Spatial Planning Officer, NAFC Marine Centre, Shetland, UK. Worked on the "Shetland Islands' Marine Spatial Plan" and associated projects, such as a Regional Locational Guidance for marine renewable developments in Shetland's waters.

2009-2010, Postdoctoral Research Associate, Boston University, USA. Used dynamical estimates along with satellite data to investigate the role of physical processes such as advection and mixing on the time variability of phytoplankton, and thereby inferring carbon production and export in open and coastal oceans.

2007-2009, Postdoctoral Research Associate, Oregon State University, USA. Used satellite and in situ data to gain insight into the oceanography driving Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) off the Oregon coast, developing a system of prediction, to provide early warnings of potential HAB events to fisheries and coastal managers.

2007, PhD Oceanography, University of Southampton, UK. "Nutrient fluxes into the seasonal thermocline of the Celtic Sea". Investigated the effects of ocean physics (in particular turbulence and internal waves) on primary production within the subsurface chlorophyll maximum, through influences on nutrient supply.

2002, MSc Physical Oceanography, University of Wales, Bangor, UK. "Biophysical interactions between phytoplankton, mussel beds and flow in the Menai Strait".

2001, BSc Marine Biology, University of Stirling, UK

 

Research

Research Interests

I am an oceanographer, interested in how physical processes in the ocean influence biological processes, principally those involving phytoplankton. For example, I look at how turbulence and mixing in shelf seas affects levels of primary production. I am particularly interested in how human marine developments impact on these physical and biological processes, and how this should be accounted for in marine management. I am interested in stakeholder and communities' understanding of the range of ecosystem services that can be supplied by local marine areas.

I am heavily involved in knowldege exchange, particularly with marine management bodies, in particular the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) and Marine Scotland.

 

Current Research

I have recently started a NERC Knowledge Exchange Fellowship (2016-2019), partnered with the Marine Management Organisation. During the fellowship, I will work to support engagement between the academic oceanographic community and marine management and planning authorities, such as the MMO and Marine Scotland, focusing on filling environmental/ecological and socio-cultural evidence requirements, including through the use of the ecosystem services concept. 

I was the MarCRF Research Fellow in Marine Spatial Management (2013-2016), working jointly between the University of Aberdeen and Marine Scotland Science.

The "CORPORATES" project (http://www.corporatesproject.co.uk/), is centred around the Firths of Forth and Tay region. I am using research cruise and satellite data to look at phytoplankton distributions in the area, and how these distributions relate to physical parameters, such as depth, bottom slope, temperature and stratification. Additional work is looking at how these parameters and phytoplankton distribution relate to bird and marine mammal distributions. I have recently completed some bio-physical modelling in the region, in collaboration with Rory O'Hara Murray at Marine Scotland Science, looking at how changes to tidal currents driven by offshore wind farm wind turbine foundations affect primary production in the locality.

I am also comparing satellite derived data to time series data from Marine Scotland Science's long term monitoring site situated off shore from Stonehaven, in the NW North Sea. This work is motivated partly in considering the use of remote sensing for monitoring for Good Environmental Status under the Marine Strategy Framework Directive's Descriptor 5 (Euthrophication).

Current and previous research integrates in situ, satellite and model datasets. I also have ~150 days at sea, including ~25 days as Principle Scientific Officer.

I have experience with research projects involving academic institutes, government research institutes and agencies, and stakeholder and local interest groups, and current reseach also involves stakeholder engagement. I have been involved in "CORPORATES" work investigating how best to introduce the concept of ecosystem services into marine management processes through stakeholder engagement workshops.

 

Collaborations

I am currently collaborating on work with the Marine Management Organisation (MMO), under my NERC KE Fellowship, and with the other NERC KE Fellow working with the MMO, Dr Katherine Yates. I also collaborate a lot with colleagues at Marine Scotland Science, both in research and student supervision.

I was involved in the CORPORATES programme, with colleagues from Marine Scotland Science, the University of Aberdeen (including members of the Schools of Biology, Geosciences, and Law), and also the James Hutton Institute and SAMS.

I also collaborate with the Marine Spatial Planning Team at the NAFC Marine Centre in Shetland, UK, where I previously worked, and with other colleagues within the UK and worldwide.
