PhD title: Understanding the impacts of shipping traffic in marine protected areas

Lincoln’s fascination as a child with the ocean led her to study marine science at the University of Victoria, Canada. After completing her degree, she worked as a Research Assistant for the Sea Around Us, at the University of British Columbia, Canada, updating all maritime countries catch reconstructions in order to gain a better understanding of global fisheries. In 2017 she travelled to Australia where Prof. Dirk Zeller had created the Sea Around Us – Indian Ocean node and where she continued her work in fisheries science. While working as a researcher at Sea Around Us– IO, she decided to pursue a PhD in Marine Science in the Marine Futures Lab studying the effects of vessel traffic noise on wildlife in marine protected areas.
