My research looks at nitrogen and carbon cycling in aquatic systems, with a main emphasis in benthic sediments. Whilst my research was always either marine or estuarine based I have been investigating nitrogen cycling in lowland rivers, including the capacity of macrophytes to filter and process organic matter. I am also seeking to further understand the impact of anthropogenic activities in coastal seas by looking at the links between primary and secondary production in the western Irish Sea and the impacts of trawling in the North Sea.
