Welcome to Plankton and Policy! I’m a lecturer in marine conservation at Plymouth University and, as of September 2013, a NERC Knowledge Exchange Fellow. My research focuses on applying and implementing marine conservation policy in the UK and Europe, with a focus on planktonic systems. I created Plankton and Policy to promote my ecological research, KE Fellowship activities, outreach activities and policy work and to engage with others who have an interest in marine conservation. To learn about my life at the science and policy interface, check out my blog and my Twitter feed – Knowledge Exchange is all about engaging and interacting, so please connect with me.
