Liliana Poggio Colman
PhD Student


I am a PhD student within the Centre for Ecology and Conservation, working under the supervision of Professor Brendan Godley and Dr Annette Broderick. I am Brazilian and have worked with marine turtles in Brazil since 2007, having conducted both in-water research and also work on nesting beaches. My current research involves studying the ecology of Leatherback sea turtles in Brazil, through the use of diverse techniques such as satellite tracking, stable isotopes, sex ratios and population trends analysis.

Broad research specialisms:

  • Ecology
  • Conservation
  • Marine turtles
  • Spatial ecology
  • Population trends
  • Mark and recapture studies
