In particular, she supports research into the future planning of Areas Beyond National Jurisdiction (ABNJ) and conservation of Biodiversity Beyond National Jurisdiction (BBNJ) projects. She is also working on the Toolkit for Ecosystem Service Site-based Assessment (TESSA) which aims to provide practical guidance on how to identify and assess significant ecosystem services at the site level.
Prior to joining the Centre, Juliette worked on coral reef biodiversity with the University of Tokyo, and conducted research on bottlenose dolphin bioacoustics in Lisbon, Portugal. She has also been involved in various interdisciplinary research projects including Jellywatch, aiming to predict jellyfish blooming cycles in the Mediterranean Basin, and a project on ant phylogeny with the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology. Juliette has a BSc in Environmental Science and an MSc in Marine Environmental Management from the University of York. She further undertook an MSc in Ecosystem Services at the University of Edinburgh. She is fluent in English, German and French.
Juliette’s role is to develop case studies of area-based planning tool usage in ABNJ, and to liaise with stakeholder of these regions. She will also be a facilitator at two objective setting workshops that will be held in the project’s two pilot regions, the South-East Pacific and the Western Indian Ocean.
Juliette’s was one of the organisers of the BBNJ conservation agenda workshop which took place in Cambridge in May 2016, and has helped review the two foundation documents of this project: a Horizon Scan of threats to BBNJ, and the BBNJ Legal Scan.
Juliette’s role is to assess how a marine component could be integrated into TESSA.
