Dr Magnus Johnson

Lecturer in Environmental Marine Biology & Dive Instructor

Reachout Coordinator

I grew up in the Shetland Islands and come from a family with a history of whaling, fishing and crofting. After graduating from the University of Plymouth I went on to read for an M.Sc. in Marine and Fisheries Science at Aberdeen University. My Ph.D. (Leicester University) was a study of the specially adapted eyes of deep-sea shrimps and involved spending 9 months at sea on British and Russian research vessels. After completing my PhD I worked as a scientific observer on board a Spanish fishing vessel in the Antarctic, directed a marine station in Jamaica, worked for the Royal Geographic Society in the Seychelles, and worked as a research diver in Belize.
