About me

First UK "bathynaut" to dive beyond 5 km (3.1 miles) deep in the ocean, and participant in the first minisub dives to reach 1 km (0.62 miles) deep in the Antarctic.

I'm an award-winning communicator, writer, & educator, and co-founder of a company that trains scientists in how to share their research with wider public audiences.

Meanwhile, as a scientist my research explores life in the ocean depths that cover most of our world, where I have led expeditions discovering new species of deep-sea animals.
