Daina Mathai, from Mombasa, Kenya is a Coastal and Marine Researcher with a B.Sc. in Environmental Sciences. She earned a European Joint Master Degree (EJMD) in Water and Coastal Management from University of Bologna and the University of Càdiz. Her thesis work focused on the quantification of coastal ecosystem services with an emphasis on the freely available satellite imagery and mapping tools. Before coming to CCOM/JHC she worked at Kenya Marine and Fisheries Research Institute (KMFRI) in the GIS and Remote Sensing lab on coastal ecosystems mapping-related projects and data analysis collected onboard R/V Mtafiti. Daina is currently a GEBCO scholar who is curious about the complexity of the coast and intends to expand her career in coastal mapping. Away from her laptop, you will find her lost in the scenery of hiking trails.
