Marine ecology and coastal climate adaptation
Applying ecological engineering techniques to develop novel methods for shoreline protection using a diversity of restored or created coastal habitats (e.g. mangroves, saltmarsh, seagrass, kelp and shellfish reefs).
- Creating windows of opportunity in mangrove restoration
- Developing novel biodegradable materials for use in living shorelines and restoration (with Dr Rackel San Nicolas, Infrastructure Engineering)
- The missing ecosystem service: assessing wave attenuation of kelp beds
- Spatial prioritisation of nature-based coastal defence under climate change (with Dr Rebecca Runting, School of Geography)
- Ecological data to inform shellfish reef living shorelines
