Personal profile

Research Focus

My research interests lie in the development and functionalisation of marine materials, mainly seaweeds and microalgae for pharmaceutical, biotechnological and biomedical applications. This includes development of green algae extracts, valorisation of biomass, extraction and identification of biologically active compounds from marine biomass sources, marine based biomaterials for tissue engineering, biomedical applications of marine extracts and algal animal feeds. I have worked on a number of industrial and research-based projects in this area. My research has been funded by Invest NI, Royal Society, and EU H2020.

I have recently been PI on two industrial projects, one focusing on the bioremediation of waste nutrients from Anaerobic Digestion to act as a fertiliser to grow microalgae, the other was focussed on seaweed supplemented animal feeds to improve gut health and nutrition in livestock. Both of these projects were funded by Invest NI Competence Centres (CASE and AFQ). I am currently involved as Co-I on an EU project - SeaSolutions, to help reduce methane emissions in livestock using seaweed extracts.
