Nick Higgs is Deputy Director of the Marine Institute at Plymouth University, where he previously worked as Postdoctoral Research Fellow in marine ecology. Prior to this, he was based at the University of Leeds and the Natural History Museum for his doctoral work.
His research is generally concerned with the recycling of organic matter in ocean ecosystems, the processes generating life from death. This has primarily been in the context of deep-sea habitats but also includes tropical seagrass beds and lobster fisheries.
Nick has been a member of Christians in Science since his undergraduate studies in Southampton and now serves on the committee.
