I am a PhD student based at the National Oceanography Centre Southampton, with the University of Southampton. I receive funding from NERC through the SPITFIRE DTP, but the views expressed here are my own only.

What do I do there, you ask? Drink a lot of coffee and write a lot of emails.

But I also get to study the physiology of Arctic copepods (see below)! I am currently on a research expedition to the Arctic, where I’m going to email tales of my awkward vegan diet to Trina Davies – the witty wordsmith/editor – to post on here.
