I am a designer and a lecturer who uses practice as an essential part of research and teaching.

My research focusses primarily on coastal environments, particularly intertidal and estuarine areas. Here, I employ a Research Through Design approach to work with interdisciplinary teams and multiple partners (including policy makers and local communities) to explore ways to understand, monitor and design participatory nature-based interventions for coastal adaptation.
