After graduating from the University of York and then conducting a range of biological work with the then Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food, Mike started his career in ecotoxicology with ICI (now Syngenta). Over his 33 years with Syngenta and the many legacy companies, his role developed from conducting studies, through risk assessment, Project Management and advocacy on key issues with a specialism developing with bees, non-target arthropods and soil invertebrates. Mike was also part of several ECPA teams responsible for the development and shaping of industry guidance as well as various tripartite groups such as ESCORT (for non-target arthropods) and the ICPPR (for pollinators).
Mike moved into consultancy as Head of Ecotoxicology in 2017 where he has learned many new skills furthering his professional role as a consultant.
In his spare time Mike has a passion for ornithology and antiques particularly liking a vintage typewriter.
