About Jennifer Lavers
I'm a Lecturer in Marine Science at the University of Tasmania's Institute for Marine & Antarctic Studies. My research focuses on marine pollution, especially plastic debris, including describing chemical and physical impacts on species and habitats, and developing methods to standardise data collection and reporting. Much of my research also involves seabirds as sentinels of environmental change, including pollution. I have a passion for remote, uninhabited islands where nature is as it has always been.
