2018-Today: University of Sydney

Marine holds a PhD in marine biology from the University of Brest in France where she worked at the French Marine Institute for the Exploitation of Sea (Ifremer). Her research focuses on the effect of environment on mollusc health and disease expression. The work she is doing at the University is in continuity with her previous research that dealt with the effect of environment on the interaction between the Pacific oyster and Ostreid Herpesvirus 1.It includes laboratory and field work, virology, microbiology, immunology, epidemiology, risk assessment and diagnostics.She remains interested in the physiological and metabolic responses of oysters and disease expression.

Research interests

As a researcher in marine biology and an engineer in agronomy Marine is interested in how applied science can be used to help manage aquaculture. Her research interests are aquaculture, host-pathogen interactions, pathology, disease risk, physiology, and environmental stressors.

Teaching and supervision

Casual demonstratorfor practical classes in Aquaculture.

Co-supervision of AVBS Research Project program of Honours students.

Current projects

Vessel Biofouling and Aquatic Pathogens; Hick P, Fuhrmann M, R. Whittington, J. Becker; Ministry for Primary Industries (NZ) / Research Grant.

Associations

National Shellfisheries Association, USA
