Present Volunteers

Roanna Silveira

MSc Microbiology (2015)
MSc Marine Environment and Resources (2022)

Roanna has been fascinated with the underwater world, but her interest in coral reef research was piqued while she was working as a project assistant at the National Institute of Oceanography in Goa.

While working with us, she had the opportunity to contribute to hands-on projects in coral micro-fragmentation and fish identification, while also organizing educational webinars and carrying out other operational activities at Coastal Impact.

Roanna is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in Marine Environment and Resources in Europe. She hopes to pursue a thesis in coral conservation and thereafter a PhD in the same field. While her work prevents her from being an active volunteer, she continues to contribute to our efforts.
