What’s your role within the EnAlgae Project?

I’m the full-time EnAlgae project manager, based in Swansea University.

How does your work benefit the project?

It is my responsibility to ensure that all the different components of the EnAlgae project are delivered successfully. Although coordinating across  19 partner organisations is somewhat of a challenge, I am lucky to be working with a group of talented and dedicated people.

What were you doing before you joined the project?

I’ve spent the last  15 years developing, delivering and managing projects covering a broad range of environmental topics. These have given me some wonderfully diverse experiences: from working on hazardous glaciers at 5,000m in the high Himalaya to boat-based surveys along the beautiful Afon Dyfi in mid-Wales.

What are you working on at the moment?

At Swansea University we continue to upgrade our algae production facilities that form part of the project’s North West Europe pilot network. In addition, autumn is one of the busier time of the year for project administration and I will be spending a lot of my time overseeing project finances and reporting back to our sponsors, INTERREG IVB NWE.

What do you like to do when you are not at work?

With two children under five years old, down time is at a premium to say the least!  I escape the madness at home with coastal runs on the nearby Gower peninsula and mountain bike trips in South Wales’ excellent forest parks.

What’s your guilty pleasure?

Lions Midget Gems!
