Kristina Hixon BSc (Hons) MSc

Library Assistant

After graduating with a BSc (Hons) in Marine and Freshwater Biology from Aberystwyth University, and an MSc in Oceanography from the University of Southampton, I spent several years working in administration. More recently I’ve had the great pleasure of engaging with the public through a number of informal education roles that took me all around the UK. I’m now very privileged to be working as Library Assistant at the National Marine Biological Library (NMBL). Here I help with the day to day running of the library, as well as assisting with the running of the online repository PlyMSEA. I also manage the library’s social media accounts and get to engage with members and visitors to the library, helping them get the most out of their visit. Outside of work, I love to get out and about, exploring our amazing coast; I also have a passion for reading about our marine world and am slowly but steadily building up my own ‘library’ on the subject – although its not quite as large as the collection at the NMBL!
