Read how IIASA works with research partners across the globe to deliver world-class research.
Science and policy must work together to achieve a sustainable future for humanity.
Juliette Martin joined the Risk and Resilience (RISK) program at IIASA in November 2018. She will be contributing to work packages 5 and 3 of the PHUSICOS Project, aiming to demonstrate how nature-based solutions provide robust, sustainable and cost-effective measures for reducing the risk of extreme weather events in rural mountain landscapes. Ms. Martin will be specifically involved in producing living lab success stories that can inform the project’s other work packages.
Prior to joining IIASA, Ms. Martin worked at the UN Environment World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC) in Cambridge as a Programme Officer. There, she supported an FAO Project on Areas Beyond National Jurisdiction and lead the development of marine digital products, streamlining marine and coastal data to track progress towards global biodiversity targets. Previously, she worked on coral reef biodiversity with the University of Tokyo, conducting research on bottlenose dolphin bioacoustics in Lisbon. She has also been involved in various interdisciplinary research projects including ''Jellywatch'', aiming at predicting jellyfish blooming cycles in the Mediterranean Basin, and a project on ant phylogeny with the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology.
Ms. Martin is particularly interested in the science-policy interface and how complex data can be made accessible to decision-makers. Although she is specialized in biodiversity data management, marine ecology and ecosystem service assessments, her research interests are broad, and she is looking forward to delving back into social sciences.
Ms. Martin holds a BSc in Environmental Science and an MSc in Marine Environmental Management from the University of York. She further undertook an MSc in Ecosystem Services at the University of Edinburgh. She is fluent in English, German and French.
