Meet the Team

ITOPF's name and reputation are well-known. But it is the people behind the organisation that are its greatest asset. Our small London-based team of around 34 staff encompasses a number of nationalities who together speak several languages (English, French, German,  Portuguese and Spanish). 

All of our technical team have a Master’s degree and over two thirds have PhDs, with backgrounds in chemistry, marine biology, oceanography, geophysics, engineering, geology, marine geography, coastal management & protection and fisheries & aquaculture.

Our office-based team ensures that the organisation runs smoothly and our technical staff have the support they need when on site. They also collate spill-related information. liaise with our Members and Associates and help raise awareness of our activities through publications, events and seminars.
