Dr Magnus Johnson
Lecturer in Environmental Marine Biology & Dive
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.
