My current research focuses on the environmental effects of offshore renewable energy. I am interested to understand how offshore renewable energy developments will affect marine habitats, biodiversity, benthic ecosystem dynamics and processes.
The main themes I am interested in are:
Beside my current research I am interested in the genomic analysis of biodiversity, with particular focus on the effects of climate change on external and internal microbiomes of coastal species. I am also keen to get involved in research focusing on the chemical diversity of marine species and identification of novel bioactive compounds.
In addition, I have a strong interest in developing methods using autonomous vehicles, to monitor marine environments.
Publications are available to view via my ResearchGate profile.
