I am Senior Plankton Analyst for the Continuous Plankton Recorder (CPR) Survey. Having worked for the organisation as a Plankton Analyst since 2002, I have a wealth of experience in phytoplankton and zooplankton identification from around the world. My taxonomic expertise is regularly used to teach plankton identification to a wide range of learners, from complete beginners to other research scientists. I am co-author on a plankton guide to the North Atlantic and, in collaboration with the NE Atlantic Marine Biological Analytical Quality Control Scheme (NMBAQC), I am lead developer of an international zooplankton quality assurance scheme. Never one to miss an opportunity to spread my passion for plankton, I give regular talks and interviews on the importance of plankton.
