I first became interested in the marine environment through experiences diving around Scotland. Since then, I have graduated from the University of St Andrews with a 1st in Marine Biology, and from the University of Glasgow with a distinction in Quantitative Statistics in Biodiversity, Conservation an Epidemiology. I have worked with a variety of organisations including Scottish Natural Heritage and Marine Scotland in several areas including marine pollution, fisheries, and marine protected area management. My main interests are on the effects of climate change, and human activities on services and functions provided by the marine environment.
