About me

I'm a marine biologist whose research explores life in the deep ocean that covers most of our planet. As a "bathynaut", I went on the first submersible dive to the world's deepest hydrothermal vents (hot springs 5 km / 3.1 miles down on the ocean floor) and the first submersible dives to reach 1 km (0.62 miles) deep in the Antarctic.

I am also a science communicator and popular-science writer, a university educator, and co-founder of a company that provides training in communication skills for scientists to share their work more widely.
