Amy Lusher

Researcher, NIVA, Norway

I am a Researcher at NIVA in the Environmental Contaminants section. My research focuses on the distribution, interactions and potential effects of microplastics in the marine environment. I have been involved in the development of numerous methods for the identification of microplastics from different environmental matrices including sediments, water column and biota. I have been studying microplastics for 6 years now. My interest in Arctic pollution started with an exploratory expedition in 2014 investigating microplastics in the Barents Sea. Before moving to Norway, I worked as a consultant for FAO and am a member of the GESAMP/UNEP expert working group on microplastic. I carried out my PhD in Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology, Ireland and before that undertook my MRes and BSc in Marine Biology at Plymouth University. I am a marine biologist and ecologist at heart with a passion for the anthropogenic effects on the environment.
