New starter

Published: 01 September 2017

Miriam Grace started a one-year postdoc at the University of Sheffield with Tom Webb in May 2017, taking over from RĂ©mi Vergnon. Her background combines bioinformatics, theoretical biology and biodiversity policy analysis.

In addition to data coordination, she is contributing to biodiversity analyses using MERP data, focussing on assessing hotspots and the relationship between different metrics and management in Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). She is also helping to target MERP’s work on Bow Tie Analyses to policy advisory groups such as ICES, developing an ontology of MPAs, and presenting MERP research at British Ecological Society meetings and the Ignite Academy outreach event series.
