The Life of a Marine Biologist
30 January 2014, by Seavision
I currently work as a Principal Marine Biologist for an international engineering and consultancy firm www.jacobs.comand have been with Jacobs since 2007. Based in Southampton but working across the UK and Ireland I get involved in a wide range of projects; working around coastal power stations, ports and harbours, coastal realignments, tidal barrages for flood protection and rail and road bridge crossings of aquatic habitats. Jacobs work around the world, and some of my team have worked in Africa, the Middle East and Scandinavia – although there is plenty of projects in the UK that keep me busy!
