Amy Jewell

Amy joined ITOPF as a Technical Adviser in January 2022. She has attended on site during several international marine spill incidents, and has provided remote technical advice at many more. At ITOPF, she is part of the Hazardous Noxious Substances (HNS) and plastic pollution internal working groups, and helps to coordinate the Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) internal working group. She has also been involved in the establishment of an internal group focusing on diversity and inclusion, particularly on the experiences of women.

Prior to joining ITOPF, Amy was based at the University of Southampton where she completed an MSci in Oceanography with French, and a PhD in Palaeoclimate & Geochemistry. Amy focused most of her PhD research on reconstructing Quaternary North African rainfall climate by analysing Saharan dust preserved in marine sediments. Her PhD involved travel across Europe, USA, Canada, Australia & Chile. She also spent several weeks aboard the RRS Discovery in the Southern Ocean carrying out piston-coring and seismic survey operations.
