My post-graduate education was gained at the Universities of Portsmouth, and Southampton Solent, with my PhD in the field of marine protection. I am an experienced maritime researcher in sustainability and shipping. I am currently the project manager of the GEM project, which examines gender issues and seafarer’s welfare in relation to multi-cultural crews.

The research and data findings will facilitate the development of appropriate tools to help support women within the industry. I have worked for the Sustainable Shipping Initiative and the Hamble Harbour Master before joining Southampton Solent University as a full time senior research fellow, with some teaching commitments on the maritime courses.
