About me

First British person to dive more than 5 km (3.1 miles) deep in the ocean.

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

As a marine biologist, 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.
