My thesis reframes autistic ‘pragmatic deficits’ & communication difficulties as a problem of mutual understanding, looking at what happens cognitively for both parties. Is an intercultural model helpful?

My PhD looks at how 💊 aren’t all removed from 🚽 and can pollute marine environments where they can affect 🐟🦀🦐 by impacting behaviour, reproduction and even ☠️. I also look at how carbon dioxide from 🚘 and 🏭 is 📈 and changing 💊 toxicity.

I resolve cryptic speciation (animals that look alike but are genetically distinct) in endangered rays & skates, possibly discovering new species! To do this I’m using DNA sequencing techniques that have never been applied to Elasmobranchs before!

Every cell in the body has identical DNA/genes. But different epigenetic marks on the DNA regulate gene activity➡️different cell functions. I study how chemicals change these marks in🐟➡️disease/tolerance in them and even future generations

Food security is one of the most pressing issues facing the modern world. Improving the efficiency of aquaculture will be key to meet demands for 2050. Can we manipulate fish feeds to make them easier for fish to digest and enhance fish growth?

Must use ocean resources in sustainable way, for good of people, the environment and to provide continued economic benefit. But how to balance economic output with use of natural resources? Can we model economy in response to changes in nature?

I research forced and early marriage in British colonial Africa, roots of international development and humanitarian policy. Findings - how we talk about and intervene is rooted in imperialism, and we've not learned much in at least 100 years.

'Flood defences are just walls'? How about nature instead? Culm grassland is wet, species-rich grassland found in Devon. Water can be slowed or stored upstream to prevent floods elsewhere. Plus you get many benefits for species, the community and carbon storage!

My PhD explores how motherhood & sexual desire sit alongside each other. 🤱❤️ Looking 👈 to the past in order to imagine a better present & 👉, it considers how pressures on mothers to be selfless & sexless can create 👎🙁 conflicts of identity.

Glucocorticoids are used to treat millions of people every year however are now detected in our rivers. Is it possible that these drugs cause detrimental effects to fish by changing their physiology and can this alter the next generation?

I’m looking at how we can use biological indicators to measure the toxicity of oil spills and extrapolate rapid test data using modelling to predict ecosystem damage and guide decision makers. 🛢☠️ 🦐💻🐠🦈🐳

Toxic chemicals change fish gene function long after the chemical is gone. But are their grandchildren also affected, even if they’re not directly exposed? Their germ cells hold the key to observing inheritance of these deadly alterations

Petticoats, death’s-head rings & Bibles - how did 17th century women want to be remembered? My research looks at what their wills tell us about how they lived & died. Anyone who thinks that women didn’t write wills is mistaken...
