Jo is interested in the relationships between people and nature. This includes the effects people have on the environment, the ways people interact and the effects nature has on people. She has a background in marine sciences, so is particularly passionate about the connections between society and the sea. Jo currently works on the BlueHealth project at the European Centre for Environment and Human Health researching the links between aquatic environments and human wellbeing. Previously, for her PhD, she investigated the underwater noise from shipping and the BOLT Lifesaver wave energy converter in Falmouth Bay making long term recordings of underwater sound. Jo has been collaborating with FoAM Kernow (now called Then Try This) on the Sonic Kayak project, linking together her background in marine noise and BlueHealth research.
