Although my background is corporate and commercial, I have since an early age had a real interest in marine science and believe passionately in the imperative of productive oceans and how science can enable and support industry to interact with the seas and oceans in an environmentally sustainable way. This is our focus in the enterprise team at SAMS that I lead.
