My research focuses on understanding the interactions between marine biodiversity and the development of marine renewable energy devices, specifically investigating the effects of electromagnetic fields on marine species.
I am also interested in studying the life history of keystone species and their interactions with their environment and ecosystem. I am keen on improving and using this knowledge for the identification and mitigation of potential threats for a variety of species, combined with the development and use of modern tools and technologies.
