Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on invasive species management within aquatic systems. Currently, I am starting my PhD project where I will work alongside South East Water to investigate Himalayan balsam dispersal, distribution, and exposure within the River Ouse and Cuckmere catchments.

Scholarly biography

I have been lucky enough to study for both my bachelor’s and master’s degrees at the University of Brighton. In 2017, I began my undergraduate experience where I studied BSc (Hons) in Earth and Ocean Science which laid my foundation in physical geography, ecology, GIS, remote sensing, and biology. As part of my degree, I undertook a placement year at Clarksons Research as a GIS Data Technician.

My master’s research is where my interest in invasive non-native species (INNS) management started. In particular, by integrating innovative technologies such as unmanned aerial vehicles, high-resolution multispectral images, and machine learning classification techniques to identify INNS in aquatic environments.
