Welcome to my research page. I'm based at the National Oceanography Centre where I'm working with Dr. Marc Rius on marine invasive species using environmental DNA metabarcoding. More broadly, I'm interested in understanding the drivers and consequences of changes in marine biodiversity through time and space.
