About me

I’m a Caribbean deep-sea biologist working at the nexus of science, policy, and communication.

I study the weird and wonderful animals living in a range of deep-sea habitats and how our actions are impacting them.

I participate in expeditions around the world and have an extensive science communication and outreach record.

I’m a Director and Founder of SpeSeas, a 2020 National Geographic Emerging Explorer, on the Deep-Ocean Stewardship Initiative’s Executive, a World Economic Forum’s Friend of Ocean Action, a Pew-Bertarelli Ocean Ambassador, and a Scientific Associate at the Natural History Museum, London.
