Jelle Rondelez

Marine Geologist with interest in Earth Sciences, Climatology and the use of IT in marine sciences

Our team is specialized in working with european marine data quite often, seeing that this type of data is being used and well applied would be a dream for us. For that we will work hard and steady so the work of thousands of data collectors, researchers and data managers has an actual impact in the world.

I am a very social, communicative and open-minded person who is excited to exchange ideas and find solutions with an affinity for international work.

When I left the University of Bonn after my Bachelor’s degree in geosciences, I made a conscious choice to focus on the investigation of the ocean which is perhaps biggest geological frontier. I think it is amazing how much of a barrier ocean water still is to us, how much more potential is in the marine environment for industries but also how important it is to protect it. To do so, I continued with the international master’s program in Marine Geosciences at the University of Bremen. What I am especially excited about is the interaction of industrial and environmental interests in the marine environment. Specifically the challenges for marine infrastructure projects as offshore wind, communication cables, pipelines have a relevant risk associated with their installation and maintenance that can be of environmental, logistical or financial extent. I want to help finding the solutions that address industrial and environmental concerns. Hence my selected interest in ‘Blue Society’ and ‘Sustainable Blue Economy’. I happen to currently work on a university project (which is around 50 % as extensive as a master’s thesis). I do this project with my supervisor Paul Wintersteller of the Hydrography and Marine Mapping work group of the MARUM – Center for Marine Environmental Sciences and the Bremen office of the offshore surveying company Fugro Germany Marine. The focus is on the automatized identification of seabed structures that have traditionally been manually picked - using high resolution multibeam bathymetry, backscatter and sidescan sonar data. Just the past friday my project supervisor got my attention on your event as EMODNet’s values are closely related to mine and also the goals of my project. Beyond this, I also have focused on sedimentology, subaqueous landslides from a geotechnical point of view and seismic interpretation in the past. Besides the general excitement about marine challenges and related data, I have one more pragmatic motivation to apply - I do have GIS and digital mapping skills, but at the same time I know my weaknesses are true programing languages. Even more so, I know how much more I could do when I gain expertise in that area and it is a huge area of growth for me. One of my next goals is to acquire python skills, especially Arcpy (in relation to ArcGIS) as this will also bring my GIS abilities to a new level. Entering an environment as you offer within the EMODNet Open Sea Lab would therefore be straight out perfect to find like-minded people who possess the skills I am lacking and that I can share my knowledge with in return. In my free-time I have been active in and vice president of the local Erasmus Initiative that organizes events for incoming Erasmus students. So, meeting an international group of marine enthusiasts is as much a fit for my personal as for my professional passions. Because in the end I love driven and exciting people from all over the world working on the challenges of today and future together rather than independently. I am happy to have learned about EMODNet, the Open Sea Lab and the intriguing workshops offered. I can only say that I would be nothing but delighted to be invited.

Rita Meireles de Castro

Marine biologist, with a background on aquaculture/fisheries, who is passionate about marine conservation through social science and public outreach!

I truly believe that this is a great opportunity to develop unique ideas that can turn out to become great projects towards the conservation of the marine environment! Additionally, I find myself driven to these kinds of events and opportunities, since I like being creative and pro-active and I am passionate about the marine environment.

Noirin Burke

Co-Secretariat of the Irish Ocean Literacy Network. Director of Education at the National Aquarium of Ireland.

I would like to contribute to the process by sharing my experience and knowledge. I have worked in the area of ocean literacy for over 10 years , while also having experience of carrying out scientific research on Herring stocks around Ireland. I have also worked with with multiple stakeholders from the public on family days out to members of the scientific community, government departments , NGO’s and policy makers. As part of my work at the National Aquariums of Ireland and with the Irish Ocean Literacy Network I would like to gain the experience and knowledge that taking part in the workshop would bring. I could then share this with my colleagues and other ocean advocates on a local basis. I love the idea of bringing a range of people with different skill sets and areas of expertises together around the themes of ocean literacy and our marine environments and would be honoured to take part in this event.

Recently graduated from IMBRsea with internships and thesis project in ecotoxicology (microplastics & Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons)

As a recent graduate from a MSc in marine biology, my motivation in participating in the Hakathon lies in networking and getting to know other people from the area, but also getting new insights in marine sciences and job perspectives. My motivation also is to develop a good project in this time while learnig from people from different areas.
