Emily Duncan
Research Student


My broad interests lie in the fields of marine conservation and pollution. In particular what impacts the current levels of marine pollution is having upon threatened marine fauna. My research focuses on plastics pollution, an ever growing issue for marine ecosystems and threatened species including sea turtles.

During my time as an undergraduate at the University of Exeter I volunteered for three seasons with the Marine Turtle Conservation Project in Northern Cyprus. Here I gained experience in conservation work within the field and also completed my Honors Project upon the effect of anthropogenic light on marine turtle hatchling orientation.

Broad research specialisms:

  • Marine Conservation
  • Marine pollution
  • Sea turtle biology


BSc Hons Conservation Biology and Ecology (University of Exeter)
