What do you like the most about working at JNCC? - JNCC is a very friendly and inclusive workplace, everyone is open to others' perspectives and willing to discuss different ideas. Being around like-minded people also means that we do a lot of activities outside of work together too.
What’s been your greatest achievement at JNCC? - Getting mentioned on the BBC news for the work we were doing in the Scottish waters last year. We ended up with four articles in the BBC about the collaborative work we do with Marine Scotland Science and the cool animals we get to see.
