Dr Camille de la Vega is a marine ecologist at the University of Liverpool.
Her research focuses on assessing potential changes in food webs through space and time using compound specific stable isotope analyses.
As part of the ARISE project, she is analysing the δ15N in key amino acids at the base (i.e. particulate organic matter) and top (i.e. the harp seal –Pagophilus groenlandicus– and the ringed seal –Phoca hispida) of the Arctic food web to assess potential changes over large spatial and temporal scales.
Camille will use samples collected during NERC research cruises as part of the CAO and from ARISE project partners in Norway and Canada.
