Personal profile


Giulia has always loved the sea and looking after the marine environment has been her dream since she was a child, in fact she became a SCUBA diver at a very young age. After completing her Master’s in Marine Biology in Italy, Giulia worked in Norway and Mexico before moving to Australia to pursue her PhD. Giulia completed her PhD at UNSW in Sydney where she looked at solutions for restoring and protecting the threatened seagrass Posidonia australis.

Giulia is currently a post-doc looking at methods and solutions to scale up seagrass restoration in the metropolitan coastal waters near Perth and in Shark Bay, WA. Her research includes the use of seagrass transplants, seeds and naturally-detached fragments for restoration. She is involved with 'Operation Posidonia' and 'Seeds for Snapper', two citizen-science projects aiming at restoring meadows of the declining seagrass Posidonia australis. She is also passionate about science communication to raise awareness about the ecological importance of amazing seagrasses.
