Charlotte Eve Davies

Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute of Marine Sciences and Limnology, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM)

Charlotte's research focuses on the impacts of parasites and disease on marine populations. Since beginning her studies in 2008, Charlotte has traveled extensively, working with collaborators in the USA and Canada, gaining valuable experience in a range of disease detection methods and learning more about marine management strategies. Her doctorate at the Department of Bioscience, Swansea University (UK) focused on determining the health status of commercially important European crustacean populations; susceptibility to disease, the effects of invasive species and how fisheries closure can impact the health of crustaceans. Her current position at the Reef Systems Unit in Puerto Morelos, Mexico, investigates the effects of crustacean disease on coral reef health. She is passionate about the integration of fishermen and marine scientists for the betterment of fisheries management and a sustainable future.
