Biography

I received my degree in Oceanography and Chemistry from the University of Liverpool in 1994 and my Masters in Marine Resource Development and Protection with distinction from Heriot Watt University in 1996. My PhD thesis Unresolved Complex Mixtures of aromatic hydrocarbons in the marine environment: solubility, toxicity and photodegradation studies was carried out at Plymouth University in conjunction with Plymouth Marine Laboratory.

Research Interest

My research focusses on a wide range of fate and effect of different complex mixtures in the environment. I have recently (September 2014) been awarded special leave for scholarly purposes to develop the research currently underway in my group and utilize new instrumentation (GC-MS/MS and LC-QToF) to determine levels of persistent, as well as emerging contaminants in the region. My lab was recently donated a mercury analyzer by Prof Eric Dewailly from Laval University that was previously used in the Atlantis Mobile Laboratory, to continue our work on mercury levels in the region.
