My research interests are linked by the theme of transitional waters and associated environmental quality;
-Sediment fingerprinting (provenance) studies using organic tracers. Particularly carbon sinks and stores in coastal and estuarine environments,
-Use of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging to study oil binding in sediments,
-Changes to EU legislation regarding the aquatic environment,
-Interactions of natural scientists and lawyers in the formulation of environmental regulations (specifically diffuse pollution),
-Natural resource management, environmental protection and environmental crime.
