Roanna Silveira graduated with an MSc in microbiology and a deep interest in marine research. While working as a project assistant at the National Institute of Oceanography in Goa, she was particularly fascinated by coral reef conservation. Her work gave her the opportunity to collect samples on the reefs at Mandapam, Tamil Nadu, where she was awestruck by the incredible world underwater and disturbed to see how much has been destroyed leading her towards pursuing a career in reef conservation research where she hopes to contribute to further our knowledge about the oceans and ways to protect it and undo the damage already done.
She has also worked as a Lecturer at Goa University for a brief period.
