Staff Profile profile for liajac
Membership Assistant – servicing the members of all categories of the MBA and working to improve their experience and benefits with us.
I have always been interested in the Marine environment and I have dived since I was young. I studied Marine Biology at Plymouth University and I am currently undertaking an MSc Applied Marine Science alongside my job role. The highlight of my Marine Biology journey so far was having the opportunity to live and work in Fiji on an Industrial Placement, surveying coral reefs in order to implement Marine Protected Areas.
My master’s degree has given me an opportunity to learn about Marine Policy and I have been working alongside Matt Frost to better understand the subject and the MBA’s role in the science-policy interface. I am now working towards writing my dissertation in this subject area.
