Biography

Nickie spent most of her childhood living overseas and joined the merchant navy at 16, sailing with BP Tankers and qualifying as a navigation officer. After leaving the sea she lived overseas again, in Papua New Guinea and Oman, working in a variety of shore based shipping roles.

On returning to the UK she completed a BSc (Hons) Marine Geography. Since joining the teaching staff at Southampton Solent University in 2005, she has completed an MPhil which investigated the effectiveness of particularly sensitive sea areas as a protective measure for the marine environment from shipping.
