With A lifelong passion for biology and geology, Marie is an ecology consultant that loves anything to do with the ocean.
Marie started with the 4Sight team as a Field Technician in January 2020 before becoming an Ecology Consultant in January 2021.
Based in our Northland office, Marie is responsible for processing samples in our Tutukaka laboratory and assisting with and producing ecological research, statistical analysis, and report writing.
With a Bachelor of Science (majoring in Environmental Science), Marie's studies primarily focused on the pressures and effects of various land uses on freshwater systems and erosion processes and how successful resource management can lead the way to a more sustainable future. In her final year of study, she also furthered her knowledge in spatial analysis by studying GIS and remote sensing.
Originally from Germany, she has a passion for the ocean, and when she's not in the office or out undertaking benthic sampling (for example), you will most likely find her by, in, or on the water scuba and free diving, surfing, or adventuring on her liveaboard sailboat anchored up around the Tutukaka coastline.
