Dr Angela Carpenter

I am a Visiting Researcher, School of Earth and Environment, University of Leeds, UK, and an Affiliate of the Faculty of Engineering and Environment, University of Gävle, Sweden. I have been involved in research into how international and European Union policies impact on the activities of maritime ports and installations and on marine environmental protection for almost 20 years and obtained my PhD in 2005.

I edited a volume for Springer Handbook of Environmental Chemistry on ‘Oil Pullution in the North Sea’ (published January 2016), am currently co-editing and contributing to a volume on ‘Oil Pollution in the Mediterranean Sea’ in two parts (Part I: The International Context and Part II: National Case Studies) for Springer, due to appear in 2018, and also co-editing and contributing to a volume on “Oil Pollution in the Black Sea” (also in two parts and due in 2019). I have worked as an External Consultant to the European Commission on a project relating to the provision of port reception facilities in EU seaports, the subject of my PhD research, and am an Assessor/Rapporteur for EU Horizon 2020 grants for the European Commission. I have also been involved in a project with University of Gävle in Sweden looking at improving sustainability in seaports and increased collaborative activities between ports and universities.
