Currently I am working towards the establishment of a Voluntary Marine Conservation Area in North Cornwall.
My research interests include estuarine and marine ecology with particular respect to biogeochemical cycling. The research conducted towards my PhD focused on the bacterial diversity of intertidal mudflat and the effect of microphytobenthic biofilms on the communities. My research interests also include the use and development of molecular tecniques (T-RFLP, RT-PCR, cloning, shot gun sequencing) in support of ecological investigatoins.
My research interests also extend to coral reef systems, including the effects of sedimentation, isolation and identification of associated zooxanthellae, and community fingerprint analysis of scleractinian corals in the Indo-Pacific region.
Further research in support of setting up and management of marine protected areas and coastal zone management schemes.
The establishment of a VMCA has led instead to the adoption of St Agnes VMCA. This has been relaunched under Cornwall Wildlife Trust's Your Shore project, co-ordinated by Abigail Crosby. My project's input has been to design an information board to be produced by CWT and to be placed at Trevaunance Cove, set up a website - www.st-agnesvmca.org.uk, which will have content generated by students and volunteers and to undertake research dives to produce educational images that can be used for education material, the website and St Agnes Museum. Efforts have also been made to engage students in acting as volunteers for the VMCA for the activities organised by CWT and in the future, educational programmes for the public will be designed with the students, potentially for them to deliver.
