Chloe Nunn is a marine ecologist and social scientist whose work focuses on the contributions of coastal habitats to people, with a particular interest in seaweed and community resilience. In her capacity as a consultant over the last five years, including for the UN Ocean Decade, she has worked to implement transformational ocean action in support of sustainable development. As a 2018 National Geographic Explorer, she is an avid writer and public speaker, with a particular interest in education outreach.

She has provided ongoing support to the UK Polar Network, for the last five years, from science festivals to report writing. Her involvement with UKPN has offered her invaluable opportunities such as participating in the Study of Environmental Arctic Change as a co-production team member, meeting members of the polar science community, building collaborations, delivering training, and being on the BBC News Channel!

Her other interests include traveling, experiencing new cultures, outdoor and water-based activities (mostly sailing), and living sustainably.
