Personal profile

Research Expertise

I am a physical oceanographer, studying flow processes at relatively small scales and working to understand their implications for the marine environment. I aim to bridge the gap between modelling/theoretical studies and the real world, in contexts from the coastal waters of Western Scotland to the deep ocean.

Current research projects

COMPASS (Collaborative Oceangraphy & Monitoring for Protected Areas and Species): creating a network of buoys to track, model and monitor aquatic life and oceanographic processes between Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland. The project develops common, connected monitoring programmes and data management practices across the regions. Project led by Agri-Food & Biosciences Institute, with other partners being Marine Institute, Inland Fisheries Ireland, Marine Scotland Science and SAMS. Funded with €6.28M by EU Interreg VA through the Special EU Programmes Body. 2017-21

AlterECO: An alternative framework to assess marine ecosystem functioning in shelf seas. Funded by NERC, DEFRA and WWF. 2017-20

Windy HABs: minimizing the risk of harm to aquaculture and human health from advective harmful algal blooms through early warning (Windy HABS): Funded by BBSRC and NERC. 2015-17

Past highlight projects

FASTNEt: Fuxes across sloping topography of the North East Atlantic: Funded by NERC. 2013-15
