Dr Anna Belcher

Postdoctoral researcher, British Antarctic Survey (BAS)

I studied oceanography at the University of Southampton, taking the opportunity to do a study year abroad at the University of Washington in Seattle,  a year which really reinforced my love of observational oceanography.

After spending a couple of years working in South Wales as an oceanographic surveyor, I returned to the University of Southampton to complete my PhD, studying mesopelagic carbon flux, particularly in the region of South Georgia, Antarctica.

I am now taking up my first post-doc position at British Antarctic survey, working as an Ecological Biogeochemist to support the DIAPOD project.
