At present I am working on several projects that involve coastal ocean and estuarine modelling, particle tracking of pelagic and benthic fauna, and benthic habitat modelling and estimation. My responsibilities range from collecting and manipulating historical physical and geographic data for model input and analysis to writing programs for data visualization and processing. A wide range to cover, but always focused on data and data ethics.

Other Interests

I enjoy doing science outreach and am part of STEM Professionals in School. I also enjoy working with LEGO for the endeavour and have designed several models of scientific vessels, instruments and animals of interest:
