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.
