Zoe Doubleday is a marine ecologist and avid promoter of accessible science. She is particularly known for her research on cephalopods and "weedy" ecology, as well as using biominerals to unlock the environmental and biological histories of animals. Ultimately, Zoe’s aim is to build knowledge and develop solutions to address today’s pressing environmental challenges.

Zoe is also on a mission to boost the readability and readership of what scientists write, particularly peer-reviewed publications. Her goal is to not only boost public engagement in science, but also boost collaboration within the STEM community. Zoe’s research on writing has caught the attention of Nature, PNAS, Trends in Ecology & Evolution, and the Australian Academy of Science, as well as numerous research institutions in Australia and abroad.

Zoe is also an award-winning science communicator and works regularly with the media to promote diversity in STEM, marine research and the environment.

For her commitment to science and excellence in science communication Zoe has received 15 awards: including a 2017 SA Young Tall Poppy Award and Thinkable's inaugural Peer Prize for Women in Science.
