Project Title 

Biodiversity and bioprotection of historic maritime structures: a possible win win?

Background & Summary of Project

My project focuses on developing an understanding of the biodiversity value of historic maritime infrastructure such as harbour walls, fortifications and breakwaters. At the same time, it aims to identify protective functions of the species and communities that these structures support using a combination of field and lab experiments, including field block exposure trials. 

Previously I have received a MSc in Geophysical Hazards from UCL and a BA in Geography from Oxford University. Additionally, I have a PGCE from the Institute of Education and have worked as a secondary school Maths teacher.
