A broadly trained ecologist, for the last decade or more my research has focused on plastic pollution. I take a risk-based approach to addressing the issue, focusing on four main components: sources and drivers (where does leakage into the environment happen, and, importantly, why); movement and distribution (how does waste move, where does it end up?); impacts (on seabirds, turtles, marine mammals, people, economies); and policy responses (what policies are effective, what interventions are successful and cost effective).
