PhD Researcher Profile

Tile of thesis: Biomass accumulation and biodiversity on artificial structures in coastal waters and their contribution to carbon cycling

Biography

As a first-year PhD researcher at Ulster University. My focus lies on marine macroalgae and sessile species within biofouling communities. Specifically, my area of focus is determining the role these communities play in carbon cycling and observing the species assemblages present on navigation buoys off Ireland's coasts. From a young age, I have always had an affinity for the sea and enjoy open water swimming and paddle boarding in my free time.
