Marine is a conservation biologist with a PhD in ecology & evolution from the National Museum of Natural History (Paris, France). During the last 8 years, she has been investigating spatial biodiversity patterns and the processes that shape them – including anthropogenic pressures – in order to guide conservation strategies. She has been addressing these issues on a variety of groups (seaweeds, invertebrates, fishes, and mammals), ecosystems (marine, freshwater and terrestrial ecosystems), spatial scales (from the local to the global scale) and biodiversity facets (genetic, taxonomic, trait and phylogenetic diversity). Marine joined the Joint Research Centre (JRC) in December 2019 to further support the Digital Observatory for Protected Areas (DOPA) regarding the connectivity of protected areas and investigate the loss of biodiversity due to the consumption of EU citizens. In her spare time, she enjoys water sports such as scuba-diving and underwater hockey.
