Biography

Biography

I am a marine biologist with a keen interest in the development and management of sustainable marine protection areas, that are supported by an ecosystem-based approach. I have extensive marine monitoring experience, having worked on several projects around the world researching human-impacts on marine habitats. I have previously worked in the field to assess MPA efficacy along the Portuguese coastline as an IAESTE researcher, as well as extended field seasons in Northern Cyprus, Malaysia and the Galapagos Islands.
