Robert Mrowicki

Rob is a marine community ecologist and conservation scientist, interested in the causes and consequences of biodiversity in shallow marine ecosystems. Following his PhD research on the ecology of rocky shores in the North Atlantic, Rob has worked extensively in South Atlantic UK Overseas Territories (Ascension Island, Tristan da Cunha and the Falkland Islands) on various marine and fisheries sustainability projects, combining baseline data collection with local capacity building to support future ecological monitoring and management.

His most recent postdoctoral research project at the Natural History Museum, in partnership with the South Atlantic Environmental Research Institute, involved the exploration of seaweed diversity in the Falklands via molecular-assisted taxonomy, analysis of historical change in seaweed species distributions using herbarium records, and development of a citizen science project for monitoring seaweed habitats. Rob is currently a Postdoctoral Research Assistant on the Darwin Tree of Life project, which aims to sequence the genomes of all known eukaryotic species in the British Isles, and a Scientific Associate within the Algae, Fungi & Plants Division at the Natural History Museum.
