Emma Stuart
Emma graduated with a First Class Honours degree in BSc Marine Biology and Oceanography from the University of Plymouth in 2020. For her final year research project she developed an expedition to Greenland with an aim to understand how modern distribution patterns of benthic foraminifera are linked to paleo-climates. This worked showed that distributions and community structures of benthic foraminifera are strongly coupled with pelagic primary productivity along with climate driven shifts in oceanic regimes.  Emma is now working as a research assistant in the Smale Group with an aim to understand how kelp forest community structure varies over a latitudinal gradient.
