I am a senior numercal ecologist with the Continuous Plankton Recorder (CPR) team, as well as a data scientist at the Marine Biological Association (MBA). My research is focused on developing and using ecological concepts, statistical analysis and associated data processing piplelines to explain spatio-temporal variability in planktonic communities. Specialised in marine ecosystems, I have published papers dealing with ecologicaal niche concepts, mesoscale ecology, spatial and temporal dynamics, and trophic interactions. I am also leading the iCPR project, which aims at enhancing the existing CPR platform by integrating new technologies within the most geographically extensive marine biological survey in the world. The project contributes to the development of AI enabled biological observing systems through the creation of an autonomous platform gathering in situ images alongside biological material.
