Current Research

My research is in benthic ecological pattern and process particularly related to both anthropogenic and natural disturbance. I am assessing disturbance related effects across a range of scales, from megafaunal and meiofaunal communities to individual organism physiology. Most of my research is field based, principally with remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs). Some of my current research is listed in more detail below.

Benthic Ecology

I have studied the megafaunal communities from the seashore to 2000 meters in depth in the Faroe-Shetland Channel and Norwegian Sea. The ecosystems in this area are highly diverse and spatially variable owing to the rapid changes in physical oceanography as warm Atlantic water overlays cold Arctic water. I first started work in the Faroe-Shetland Channel investigating the natural variations in the deep-water communities along the channel axis using a towed camera platform. Through my work with the SERPENT project I have led many ROV studies and been involved in several other investigations of the megafauna around the hydrocarbon fields throughout this area.

I also focused on a number of other areas including the Arctic (east Greenland, Iceland and the Barents Sea), Antarctica (Weddell Sea), west Africa (Mauritania, Ivory Coast, Angola, Nigeria), southern Europe (Portugal) and the tropical Americas (Bonaire, Bahamas and Atlantic Venezuela). This work has used a variety of techniques to assess benthic ecology including ROVs, AUVs, SCUBA diving, camera platforms, satellite imaging and vessel-based sampling.

Disturbance in the Deep Sea

The effects of both natural and anthropogenic disturbance across a range of scales has also been of interest to me. I concentrated on the effects of disturbance from oil and gas drilling activities in the deep-sea, or at least beyond the reach of divers. Through working closely with the key companies working in these areas with SERPENT, we have been able to access many newly disturbed and some recovering sites with highly capable work class ROVs. My initial interest was in describing the broad-scale community-level responses to disturbance but I am now principally using in situ experimental techniques, made possible with the manipulation capacity of the ROVs, to try and understand the responses of key benthic organisms to disturbance. I am also interested in experimentally assessing important ecosystem functions, such as bioturbation, and investigating how these are affected by disturbance. In addition, I have worked on iceberg and sediment related disturbance in the polar regions.

Underwater Imaging

Ecological information that can be gained from seabed imaging, principally through photographs and video has also been of great interest. I developed and evaluated methodologies for image analysis from a variety of platforms to successfully investigate aspects of megafaunal communities throughout the world's oceans. My current work on broad-scale assessment and characterisation of marine communities uses acoustic and conventional imaging (habitat mapping and landscape ecology).


 
Carbon transfer to the deep-sea

At present I am engaged on a number of projects assessing the role of gelatinous organisms in carbon transfer to the deep sea. I think this represents an important and often ignored source of carbon for deep-water communities.


 
Other Details

I am currently a senior researcher in the DEEPSEAS group at the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton. I have run the SERPENT project since 2006. I have a PhD in deep-water polar community ecology from the University of Southampton, a MSc in marine resource management (with distinction) from Heriot-Watt University and a BSc in marine biology (first class) from the University of Wales, Bangor. I am a trained commercial SCUBA diver.
