Particle Flux Technician

The main role of this post is sediment trap deployment planning, preparation, sample processing and dataset publication. Additionally, I support various biogeochemical sensors at sea, programming, downloading, calibrating, dataset submission and publication.

I manage the particle flux laboratory, technicians and students who work within it; their health and safety, methods and samples. 

At NOC open days, I introduce and present meso zooplankton using posters and microscopes. The stand is popular with both children and adults.

I facilitate the PAP-SO website, cruise blogs and twitter, and ensure there is a mix of news and science for a wide audience.
