Imogen Hamer

Consultant

Imogen joined MRAG as a Consultant having graduated from Bangor University, with an MSc in Marine Biology. As part of her MSc Thesis, Imogen analysed the spatio-temporal variation of benthic community structure of reefs surrounding Grand Cayman, over a 30-eyear period. This work aimed to inform the efficacy of current management strategies, as well as highlight long term trends in particular species groups within the Cayman Islands. Imogen has also worked for the non-governmental organisation Madagascar Research and Conservation Institute as part of their marine team. Here, her work focussed on both environmental and socio-economic objectives, including assisting local communities to improve their fishing practices, re-designing survey methods and collaborating with other local organisations in wider conservation goals.
