I spent 20 very happy years working as a Civil Engineer in many parts of the UK, but also with 10 years in Tanzania, Dubai and Oman before returning to study Geophysical Sciences at UEA as a mature student. I discovered the science of oceanography and in particular coastal processes and carried on to complete a PhD at UEA, working with an inspiring research group at UEA, guided by Chris Vincent in 2004.
After a UEA post doc job, a lecturer's post and a further three years working as a marine specialist with Meteorologists Weatherquest Ltd, I moved to Cefas five years ago where I am now group manager for Ocean Processes and Systems. Whilst scientifically, I stay close to coastal processes at Cefas, much of my work involves numerical modelling of coastal processes, geomorphology and water quality and I get great pleasure and opportunity from working with an extremely lively bunch of fellow scientists! Cefas is a government department (executive agency of Defra) but it is a fantastic place to work to integrate all scientific disciplines and be part every aspect of marine science imaginable.
I have been a member of the Challenger Society since 2002 and was elected as Honorary Secretary, despite my attrocious spelling! I now am the web developer and Mattias Green is the Honorary Secretary.
