Dr Adriana Vergés completed a BSc (Hons) in Marine Science at the National University of Ireland (Galway), an MSc in Science communication at Dublin City University, and a PhD in Ecology at the University of Barcelona. She is currently a lecturer at the University of New South Wales and a member of the Sydney Institute of Marine Science. Her research is largely field-based and focuses on the ecology and evolution of marine trophic interactions, working in both temperate and tropical systems in seagrass meadows, algal forests and coral reefs. She is particularly interested in the effects of global environmental change on species interactions, as mounting evidence shows that some of the most severe consequences of a rapidly changing environment are not caused by direct effects on individual species, but are instead driven by effects on the interactions between species.
