School of Marine Science and Technology
I joined the School of Marine Science and Technology in August 2016 following 16 years at the University of Aberdeen’s Oceanlab. I am a Senior lecturer and teach marine ecology, specialising in deep and extreme environments. My main personal research interests are in deep-sea technology for the study of deep-water fish, bioluminescence and anything from extreme depths (or anywhere that simply isn’t normal).
My research interests are primarily the biological exploration of the deep sea and associated technology with an emerging interest in simulating extreme marine environments in laboratory conditions. My main focus is on exploring the very deepest parts of the ocean, the Hadal Zone (6000-11,000 m). The hadal zone comprises deep trenches formed by tectonic subduction and centred mostly around the Pacific Rim.
In 2007 I designed two hadal-rated landers, and in recent years designed and constructed another two. These Hadal-landers have now been deployed in the hadal trenches over 180 times over 13 cruises in seven trenches in the Pacific Ocean (Japan, Izu-Bonin, Mariana, New Hebrides, Kermadec, Tonga and Peru-Chile). Of these, over 120 deployments have been made using baited camera landers and the rest with various baited trap systems.
This work was achieved through the HADEEP 1 project (2006-2011; Nippon Foundation and NERC), HADEEP II (2010-2012; Total Foundation), HADEEP III (2012-2013; MASTS), HADEEP IV (2012-2015; Total Foundation), HADES-k (2012-2015; NSF) and HADES-m (2013-2015; SOI). The latter two projects were an international collaboration, details of which can be found here. This work has recently diversified into exploring other extreme environments through the MASTS Deep Sea Forum, and leading a biodiscovery expedition to the South Shetland Trench in Antarctica in 2015 (‘PharmaDEEP’ Project).
The highlights of this research so far have been unequivocally proving that decapods do exist in the trenches, filming of the deepest fish seen alive in 2008 (Click here) and again in 2014 (Click here), filming the deepest fish in the southern hemisphere (Click here), having a hadal amphipod named after me (Click here) and finding the ‘supergiant’ amphipod in trenches and the southern hemisphere for the first time (Click here). More recently I was involved in the first biological exploration of the New Hebrides Trench (Click Here) and proving that fish are biochemically constrained from reaching full ocean depth (Click here). Check out some of the coverage from the Mariana Trench expedition on SOI's RV Falkor: BBC News, National Geographic , New Scientist , Science, Discovery and on Youtube.
I recently published a monograph on the hadal zone for Cambridge University Press that can be found here. This book also featured an endorsement from film director and explorer James Cameron who called the book "The most comprehensive book yet written on the mysteries of the ocean's deepest places, written by one of its best explorers". It was also nominated for the Royal Society of Biology Book of the Year award in 2015 (didn’t win though). You can read the review in Nature News here.
This work has also gathered significant public interest which has led to various interesting public outreach endeavours ranging from Blue Peter (Click here) to the Filmic Art 3D Deep Ocean Experience Blu-Ray DVD, to read up on this research in the scientific literature, go the ‘Publications Tab’, to read more from a popular science perspective go to the ‘Research Tab’.
