Personal profile

Research expertise

I am interested in the ca 80 toxin-producing microplankton species, what causes them to form harmful algal blooms, their distribution and how to predict HABs. 

At SAMS I am the Deputy Manager of our FSA monitoring programme for the presence of toxin producing plankton in shellfish production areas in Scotland. I am also the Deputy Radiation Protection Supervisor.
