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.

As an ocean explorer and marine biologist, my research investigates life in the ocean depths that cover most of our world, where I have led expeditions discovering new species of deep-sea animals.
