Personal profile

Research expertise

I manage SAMS' Ocean Explorer Centre and shop, and develop and deliver outreach and public engagement to increase ocean literacy and to explain SAMS research to pupils, teachers and general audiences.

I studied languages at university but had a career change when I moved to Oban. An SVQ3 in Childcare and Early Education allowed me to spend time in the classroom and to develop the skills I need as an outreach officer. I am hugely inspired by what I learn about the marine environment from my colleagues at SAMS which I share with our many visitors.
