Researcher biography

Marina decided they wanted to be a Zoologist at the age of 7, so, when they were old enough, they moved away from their home town near Barcelona, in Catalunya, to go study in the UK at University College London. During their degree, they also studied abroad at UQ and, after graduating with a Masters in Biological Sciences (Zoology), they are now back to Australia as a PhD candidate under the supervision of Dr Tatsuya Amano and Professor Richard Fuller. Marina hopes to uncover the current state of international environmental agreements and legislation around migratory bird protection worldwide. They are also interested in the effect of language barriers in science, particularly on international migratory bird agreements across the world.
