My research is focused on the biogeochemistry and distribution of trace elements in the ocean, both in the dissolved phase and from oceanic particulate material. Whilst I am particularly interested in bio-essential elements, such as iron, cobalt and zinc, data on a suite of elements allows a more comprehensive picture to be developed of the sources, transport and cycling of these elements in the water column. For this reason I am very interested in developing and using analytical techniques which allow for the determination of multiple elements from one sample. My research is approached through a combination of field and laboratory studies, utilising different analytical techniques, and is highly interdisciplinary.
