Researcher biography

Fedra, originally from Belgium, is currently studying a Master of Conservation Biology at The University of Queensland, aspiring to turn her passion for wildlife conservation into her career. She is especially interested in the marine environment, climate change and plastic pollution and loves to spend time underwater snorkelling or diving. With her blog "The Wandering Biologist" she wants to educate others about the problems nature is facing and try to inspire people to be the change they want to see in this world. 

She graduated from KU Leuven in Belgium with a Bachelor's degree of Science in Biology and moved to Brisbane in April 2022. Upon arrival in Australia, she spent four weeks volunteering at UQ's Heron Island Research Station. At the moment, she is assisting researchers from the Marine Spatial Ecology lab and is planning to volunteer within the Kark Group.
