    Pete Chaniotis – Marine Ecosystems Team

    When did you start at JNCC? 
    I started work at JNCC in October 2009.

    What is your role in JNCC? 
    I am currently one of the Marine Ecosystems Team Leaders working alongside two others. The work portfolio of our team is particularly diverse and broad, but is all centred largely around undertaking marine ecosystem health assessments and reporting on the results at a range of spatial scales; from individual marine protected areas right up to entire marine regions. My particular role is to lead our team's work on Marine Protected Areas, both nationally and internationally, and to support wider marine ecosystem health assessment work.

    Danny Heptinstall – International Team

    When did you start at JNCC? 
    I started in June 2018.

    What is your role in JNCC?
    My job title is Senior International Biodiversity Adviser, but that tells you very little about what I do! I provide expert advice to all four governments of the UK (although primarily the UK Government) on the development and implementation of international nature conservation treaties. This includes everything from attending UN conferences to negotiate what the treaties should include, to advising governments on what policies they can implement to achieve the aims of the treaties.

    Becky Trippier - Ecosystems Analysis

    When did you start at JNCC? 

    April 2018

    What is your role in JNCC? 

    Ecosystems Analyst - I work on a variety of projects providing support with data analysis, modelling, mapping and data management. This includes developing new techniques and tools for supporting decision makers, such as assessing the impacts of land-use change on ecosystem services and using earth observation data to monitoring habitat condition. My role is quite technical involving problem-solving using R programming to automate processes and conducting spatial analyses. I also work on developing tools to help communicate the importance of nature-based solutions in land management decisions, creating bespoke applications for stakeholders to interact with our models and data.
