Marine Research Fellow
Sargasso Sea Commission
As a Marine Research Fellow with the Sargasso Sea Commission, Fae Sapsford supports the Commission in its aim of establishing scientifically-informed mechanisms for stewardship and governance of the Sargasso Sea. This involves working in an administrative, operational, and science communications role as the Commission works with scientists and collaborating partners to protect this ‘golden floating rainforest’ of the open ocean.
Her previous experience includes working for The Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences, The Bermudian Magazine, and BBC Wildlife in a science communications capacity. She has skills in photography, videography, graphic design, visual art, WordPress interface, and writing. Fae has also participated in conservation research, including collecting data for a juvenile fish study with the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo, and participating in the Bermuda Turtle Project.
Fae has a BA in English with Creative Writing from the University of Nottingham and an MPhil in Anglo-Saxon, Norse & Celtic from the University of Cambridge, and her dissertations for both degrees were ocean-related. She has recently completed a post-graduate diploma in law.
