Ana Moya

Junior Researcher

Her name is Ana Victoria Moya Serrano, and she has been working as a local researcher for the Shark Ecology project since 2022. In 2016, she graduated as a marine biologist at the International University of Ecuador in Quito and obtained a Master's degree in Marine and Lacustrine Science and Management from an inter-university program between the Free University of Brussels, Ghent University, and Antwerp University.

In 2015, she joined the Foundation Charles Darwin as a thesis student in the Seamounts project. She returned in 2017 as a volunteer for the Shark Ecology project, where she eventually received a scholarship to pursue her master's degree. Currently, she is working as a researcher for the project, helping to monitor sharks around the archipelago.

Since she was very young, her great motivation has been the protection of ecosystems. Being part of the shark project that seeks the conservation of these endangered species is a great privilege that motivates her to continue working and learning for the cause.
