Katie Elizabeth Reeve-Arnold
Marine Research Director
Katie has a degree in Zoology from Trinity College in Dublin and a Masters by Research in Medical Science from the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland. Her previous tropical and marine field experience focused on butterfly assemblage changes in response to disturbance in Sulawesi, Indonesia, parasite-loading in fruit and insectivorous bats in Uganda, sampling and processing for habitat mapping of the Irish Sea, and currently reef health and large marine fauna species off the coast of Mozambique. Katie is fascinated by scientific experimental design and data collection structure. She enjoys teaching and developing the capacity and sense of wonder and appreciation in others. She is motivated by the need for long-term marine monitoring, especially in Mozambique's strong marine environment. She's driven by the unique and determined framework required to make volunteer citizen science wildlife data collection sound, reliable and scientifically viable - it can be done and everyone can have a great time along the way, we are proving it!
Katie is a keen scuba diver and photographer, and a massive fan of yoga and pilates...and truly believes in giving her all to fancy-dress party costumes.
