She continues to develop her portfolio, exploring the variety and richness of marine life living beneath the surface in the waters surrounding the UK.

Alice's contemporary lecture on the digital self is a key component of the Inspiring Minds project at Canterbury Christ Church University. The project aims to increase the number of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds taking up STEM subjects in higher education by 2020, and is funded by the OfS for the National Collaborative Outreach Programme.
