Yasmin Meeda


I am a marine molecular microbiologist who studies the fundamental biology of microalgae called diatoms. Diatoms are important drivers of primary productivity within ocean systems and I work to understand how they sense and respond to their environment.

I have received a degree in Biological Sciences at the University of Brighton, a Master of Research from the University of Plymouth and I am currently pursuing a PhD at the University of Exeter and the Marine Biological Association.

I also run an Instagram page @marinebiologywithyaz where I debunk myths about being a marine biologist and provide useful tips and tricks on life as a scientist.
