Based in Plymouth, UK
I am an independent scientist, filmmaker and expedition scientist/guide. A former Royal Society university research fellow, my interests are the plankton food web and how we influence it from climate change to fishing and plastic pollution. I have created plankton exhibitions around the world, worked with international fashion designers, and I founded the global, citizen science Secchi Disk study. Read my Ocean Drifters book to learn more about plankton, watch the Ocean Drifters film to hear David Attenborough describe this secret world of life, or join the Secchi Disk study if you go to sea.

Invite me to tell your audience about a secret world
My talks, images and films on plankton are new and engaging. Invite me to speak at your event, appear on your show, create an exhibition or be your expedition guest scientist.
