Marine Scotland, Marine Laboratory, 375 Victoria Road, Aberdeen, AB11 9DB, Scotland, UK

Research Interests

My current research is mainly concerned with marine assessment methodology, contaminants and their effects on marine biota and the use of fatty acids as trophic markers.  My ultimate objective is to contribute to the scientific knowledge that will ensure appropriate management of the human activities impacting on marine ecosystems.

Collaborations

I collaborate with scientists across the UK and Europe, notably those involved with the Marine Alliance for Science and Technology Scotland (MASTS) as well as those inputting to the OSPAR Commission.  I have very close collaborations with the Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen where I am Honorary Professor of Analytical and Environmental Chemistry, and the University of Aberdeen where I have an Honorary Lectureship in Biological Sciences.

External Committees and Responsibilities

I am co-chair of the UK Marine Science Coordination Committee, which is responsible for overseeing the UK Marine Science Strategy.  I provide advice to both the Scottish and UK Governments and to International fora such as the OSPAR Commission.
