About me

First British person to dive more than 5000 metres (3.1 miles) deep in the ocean, and member of the team that made the first dives by human-occupied vehicles to 1000 metres (0.62 miles) deep in the Antarctic.

I'm an award-winning communicator, writer, & 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.
