Kim Sawicki

EU Schuman Postgraduate Award, University of St Andrews - Biology

Through achieving dual-degrees in Pathobiology and Allied Health sciences, my undergraduate work prepared me for a future career in epidemiology, studying the One Health Initiative. 

In collaboration with St. Andrew’s University (Scotland) Scottish Oceans Institute and the Marine Institute (Republic of Ireland), my work explores current successful efforts in the EU which preserve cultural coastal fishing communities through the utilization and implementation of innovative technologies. My work will be shared with domestic fisheries partners and marine conservation experts who seek to expand sustainable fishing practises.
