Sue Hull

Senior Lecturer in Marine Biology and Ecology/ Programme Director, Marine Biology

Biography Sue Hull is an intertidal marine ecologist trying to understand the dynamics of the communities inhabiting rocky coasts, how climate change may impact such systems and how organisms adapt and evolve to such an extreme marine environment. She was part of the national 'Capturing the Coast' team training citizen science volunteers to survey rocky shores alongside marine biologists to answer key science questions. More recently her work on ecological enhancement of sea defences alongside Alice Hall at Bournemouth University won the CIRIA Award for Innovation in 2019.

In addition to a life-long fascination with rocky shores, Sue is an avid bird watcher who works with industry and local wildlife groups to protect wading birds. She is part of a new research cluster looking at the ecology of birds in the Humber estuary.
