Louisa is a Research Fellow at the Centre for Blue Governance.
She is interested in the effects of global environmental change on native ecosystems, species and people and what this means for environmental governance. She particularly works on topics of policy relevance relating to invasive species, aquatic animal health, biodiversity monitoring, ecosystem services and conservation of protected areas. She previously worked at the Centre for Environmental, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas), providing technical advice to the UK government to support marine and freshwater policy implementation in these areas.
Mialy is a Research Fellow at the Centre for Blue Governance, University of Portsmouth. Her research interests include marine political ecology, fisheries management, ocean governance, SDG 14.
Within the project, she was supporting the communication team in delivering the communication outputs of the project. This involves creating and coordinating communication content from the results and activities of the project.
Her hope for the project is that knowledge and policy recommendations from MaCoBioS will be mobilised by decision makers to invest more in the protection and management of marine and coastal ecosystems.
