I am a professor in Ocean and Earth Science, University of Southampton, based at the prestigious National Oceanography Centre, Southampton.

I am passionate about all things relating to sea level. My team and I investigate variations in sea level from time-scales of seconds (waves), to days (tides and storm surges), through to long-term century scale rises in mean sea level, and its impact on the coast.

I love lecturing, particularly about tides. I also really enjoyed taking to the public and media about sea level rise and coastal flooding.

I am married to the beautiful Fiona, and have a lovely six year old daughter called Ren. I love playing and watching basketball, stand up paddle boarding and being in the woods. I was born in Zambia (about as far as you can get from the sea – which is odd given I am now an oceanographer) and moved to the UK when I was 19.
