International Women’s Day- Women in Ocean Sciences

One highlight of Dr Siddhi Joshi’s life was holding a Manx shearwater chick at Skomer Island, Wales, after climbing steep cliffs to clear marine debris before seal pupping season! Initially inspired by her scientific roots in marine ecology, Siddhi did her undergraduate in Marine Biology with Oceanography and then studied hydrography. Following her MSc, she came to Galway to study maerl coralline algae during her PhD in Earth and Ocean Science and Post-Doc in Geography. She presented at conferences, went on fieldtrips sampling maerl and is committee member of Women in Coastal Geoscience and Engineering. #InternationalWomensDay2020
