MICHELLE LARUE

As a Lecturer of Antarctic Marine Science in Te Kura Aronukurangi (School of Earth & Environment) at Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha (University of Canterbury), Aotearoa New Zealand - I focus on interdisciplinary tools, such as GIS and high-resolution satellite imagery, to study spatial and population dynamics of penguins, seals, & cougars - species facing substantial conservation challenges as both the physical and social environments change across the world.

 

I am also a science communicator and believe that making science accessible by being approachable is key to public engagement and science comprehension. Welcome!
