Linnet is a PhD student at the University of Liverpool. Her background is broadly marine environments and ecosystem functioning, having done her BSc at the University of Plymouth, and then her MSc at the University of Exeter, but she has always had a passion for polar seabirds. She is interested in the functioning of polar ecosystems and the impacts of climate change on polar environments.
