I currently work at Plymouth University as Deputy Director of the Marine Institute*
I grew up in the sunny islands of the Bahamas, surrounded by turquoise sea and coral reefs, so I guess it's no surprise that I always wanted to be a marine biologist. When I was in my teens I came to the UK for school and continued on into higher education for a degree in marine biology. Despite my tropical roots, I fell into the fascinating world of deep-sea biology and undertook a PhD in this area of research at the University of Leeds and Natural History Museum, which I successfully completed in 2012. I continue to carry out deep-sea research as well as new projects in shallow habitats of the Bahamas.
