Away from teaching I have a great interest in sport, in particular running and cycling. I still like to race when I get the chance and use my scientific knowledge to help me plan my training. I am also a keen SCUBA diver, having clocked up over 500 dives worldwide. I now enjoy photographing the animals that I once studied and try to contribute to volunteer marine surveys such as the Marine Conservation Society's Seasearch programme when I get the chance.
