Amélie Augé

Amélie Augé

Former Research Fellow

James Cook University

Amélie is originally from France and got her BSc at the University of Rennes including a year spent at the University of Quebec at Rimouski. Then, she migrated to New Zealand where she completed her MSc in Spatial Ecology and PhD in Zoology at the University of Otago. She is a spatial ecologist who combines her original vocation in marine conservation with her interests in spatio-temporal data to work on applied marine and coastal conservation issues. This led her to the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies as a postdoctoral research fellow in mid-2012 where she worked on conservation planning for the Great Barrier Reef coastal zone.  In July 2014, Amélie took up a new position at the South Atlantic Environmental Research Institute (SAERI) in the Falkland Islands as a Marine Ecologist within a new governmental initiative towards Spatial Marine Planning.
