Old Sarum Park
ExpertiseManager Key staff Coastal & Marine
From my base in Cornwall, I am part of the Coastal & Marine team and work on a wide variety of both commercial and heritage sector projects in renewable energy including offshore wind farms; cable and pipeline routes; marine aggregate licences and port and harbour developments with associated capital dredging projects. I have also co-ordinated regional environmental characterisation surveys for the Thames, South Coast, Humber and East Coast regions.
I originally joined Wessex Archaeology in 2005 as Project Manager, coming from a background as a marine geophysicist working in marine survey and environmental impact assessment for marine and coastal developments. I have a particular interest in submerged prehistory and in historic aircraft and am a member of the Nautical Archaeology Society and PIANC. I am also a fellow of the Geological Society and have a degree in Geology and Masters’ degree in Petroleum Geology.
Marine archaeology motivates me because it is advancing so rapidly as a discipline and we are always finding new things. Our understanding of the seabed has evolved so much over the last decade resulting in many exciting and important offshore developments.
Outside of work I am involved with my local rugby club and coach mini rugby at the club and at my son’s school.
