EGESTABASE/End of wastewater aspires to comprehensively map scientific evidence on the recovery of nutrients from human excreta and municipal wastewater for reuse in agriculture.
The rationale is that research in this field has intensified over the past years, making it increasingly hard to navigate and keep track of.
After seeing my work for the Nature-based Solutions Initiative I was approached by Oxford’s ONE network to produce a website for Oxford Energy that coforms to the WCAG 2.1 web accessibility guidelines. The website utilises a WordPress backend, reponsive layout and is fully accessible through assistive technologies.
Continuing my work at the Nature-basesd Solutions Initiative I produced a simple visualisation looking at the distribution of cases or NbS intervention types in relation to habitat type and associated climate change impact.
For this visualisation I focussed on highlighting three outlying bird species across 1000 species within 75 different families – each radial graph representing a single phenotypic trait (bill length, tail length or mass)
Nature could be our greatest ally in the fight against climate change. The Nature-based Solutions Initiative are hosting a conference to bring together leading researchers from the social and natural sciences, engineering and economics, policymakers, civil society actors and business leaders to discuss the evidence for and potential of Nature-based Solutions. The initiative needed a clean, simple promotional website to encourage registrations and to provide clear information.

The LDC (least developed country) portal is a concept piece designed to enable policy makers in these countries to find the evidence and support they need to combat climate change impacts with in their specific habitats.

I was asked by a brand new initiative at Oxford University – Nature-based Solutions Initiative – to create a complete branding and web package including a fully interactive bibliography. Alongside this a logo, business cards, and promotional flyers were created.

Nature-based Solutions approached me again to develop their Nature-based Solutions Evidence Tool – an interactive map linking nature-based solutions to climate change adaptation outcomes based on a systematic review of the peer-reviewed literature.
This ever growing dataset needed a clean and useable interface to allow policy makers to find the science they need to allow for the inclusion on nature to help fight climate change.
The interface was developed using the D3, PHP and WordPress.
This is a data visualisation produced from a small subset of information collected by the Nature-based Solutions Initiative for their online evidence tool. The NbS Evidence Tool is an interactive map linking nature-based solutions to climate change adaptation outcomes based on a systematic review of the peer-reviewed literature.
I was approached by Sarah Knowles from the University of Oxford to update her lab website. She needed a simple design to showcase what her lab does and to entice new students to apply for opportunites to work there.
The Sarah Knowles Lab
This was just small pet project for a Lego competition which was to build a small floor in a surreal hotel. The concept behind this floor was a space programme orientated plant lab for developing gamma radiation resistance in plants.
Another ArchViz piece using Cinema 4d and Vray for rendering with cloth simulation using Marvelous Designer. Aiming for more of a interior decorator’s catalogue type of shot.
For this visualisation I wanted to recreate a moody Parisian winter’s day and to try and replicate a realistic corten steel material in Vray.
I was approached by Oxford University to re-design and re-architect their Environmental Research Doctoral Training Partnership site. The Environmental Research DTP seeks to recruit the most promising research students, from a wide variety of backgrounds, capable of developing their own research projects in line with the interests of our broad selection of supervisors.
Their original site was based around a basic HTML framework that was neither attractive nor functioned as they desired. The new site needed to have a contemporary look and feel and allowed for easy editing by content managers. The site has a fully responsive layout catering for desktop, tablets and mobile devices.
The site was built from the ground up using WordPress as a CMS.
This was a project that I completed during a course at Escape Studios. I’m a bit of a fan of old retro games and thought I would try and model a 1980s Nintendo Game & Watch.

The design of Point House was intended to make the occupants feel encompassed by their environment and to provide a simple living space away from a congested city life. The building is set low to create a sense of placement and interaction within the hills that it sits.
The Tree Snake houses are single bed cabins situated in the Pedras Salgadas Eco Resort in Portugal. They were designed by Rebelo de Andrade and Tiago Rebelo de Andrade. Not only do I find the houses to be inspirational in their design but also the environment in which they inhabit.
Spotted this wee porcelain crab (Porcellanella triloba), during a night dive, on his bit of coral – a minute later he was up top putting his feelers out to grab some nosh.
The evil twin of Nemo – well not evil as such it just has some spines below their eyes!
Nice little whip coral goby (Bryaninops yongei) hanging out
There are plenty of Scorpion fish in Lembeh, Indonesia normally just hanging out on the sea bed but this one was nicely draped over some coral.
A simple conceptual piece designed as a getaway, surrounded by pristine woodlands and projecting out across the still waters of a lake.
