Dr Siddhi Joshi
I am a marine biogeoscientist and LLM qualified human rights specialist based in London, UK, with strong interest in marine conservation and environmental protection. My professional interests include marine sediment dynamics and benthic habitat mapping, in particular of maerl or rhodolith beds (coralline red algae). Moving back to London in 2020 after 11 years in Galway, Ireland, I am a keen blogger and environmental educator behind the Seabed Habitats blog where I organise and host the Seabed Habitats Seminar Series- an exciting series of monthly talks by scientists around the world.
After a PhD at Earth and Ocean Sciences in National University of Ireland, Galway, based in the Biogeosciences research group. I recently completed a post-doctoral research year in Geography in NUI Galway and my LLM in International Human Rights Law at Irish Centre for Human Rights. My MSc was in Hydrographic Surveying at University College London (UCL) and BSc (Hons) in Marine Biology with Oceanography at the Southampton Oceanography Centre (as it was known then!) of University of Southampton. Although specialising in coastal dynamics, I have been on numerous deep sea cruises aboard the Irish research vessels Celtic Explorer and Celtic Voyager as well as the CCGS John P Tully in Canada. I have been a member of the Challenger Society for Marine Science since 2006 and am also a committee member of Women in Coastal Geoscience and Engineering.

FMRI: Science Requirements Framework - webinar
The Future Marine Research Infrastructure programme (FMRI) aims to develop and deliver the Natural Environment Research Council’s (NERC) strategic investment in the next generation of large-scale, marine research infrastructure. The programme is working towards a high-value UKRI Infrastructure Fund bid and is part of the UK Government’s Major Projects Portfolio.
MEDIN Training Survey
Have you ever attended, or considered attending, a MEDIN training workshop (‘Marine data management, governance and the MEDIN toolset’), or other training in marine data management? If so, the MEDIN would love to hear from you! The MEDIN is gathering stakeholder requirements to improve the training workshop on marine data management, governance and the MEDIN toolset.
