PhD researcher, Environmental Marine Biology, University of Hull

Melanie completed her undergraduate degree in Biological Sciences at the University of Birmingham and has worked as a PADI dive instructor around the world for seven years. Having seen the extent of plastic pollution in even remote islands, she returned to the UK to become a post graduate researcher working on the effect of microplastics upon pollutant uptake, alongside Magnus Johnson and Jeanette Rotchelle at the University of Hull Centre for Environmental and Marine Science.
