Marine Debris

I’ve been working for several years on research and teaching on marine debris.


I spent January to June of 2019 working at the University of Kerala in Thiruvananthapuram, India on marine litter, training students and faculty to collect debris using scientific methods so that they may share their results with local policymakers.

In spring 2016, under a grant from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, I worked with college students to collect debris on Connecticut’s shoreline. In just a few hours at the beach we collected over 1600 individual pieces of debris, most of it plastic. To learn all about the University of Hartford Marine Debris project, check out the site devoted to that work.
