Sara Mynott
PhD student


My goal is to find out how climate change is impacting not just individual marine species, but the relationships between them. As a member of the Sensory Ecology and Evolution group, and in collaboration with Plymouth Marine Laboratory, I’m studying intertidal animals to find out how their camouflage and, in turn, their predation will be affected by changing ocean properties.

Driven by curiosity, my academic background crosses the borders of marine ecology, geoscience and environmental management, but I’ve had the opportunity to explore other fields too and prior to my PhD I worked in the publishing and science communication sectors. As well as having a love of science, I also love to share it, spending my spare time writing about marine biology and taking any opportunity to engage the public at large.

Broad research specialisms:

  • Marine ecology
  • Climate change
  • Sensory ecology


MSc Marine Ecology and Environmental Management – Queen Mary, University of London
