Megan Cundy

Research Assistant

Megan is an Australian marine scientist with a Bachelor of Science (First class Honors) from Curtin University in Australia. Her Honors thesis compared the sampling efficacy, advantages and disadvantages of two different camera systems in the long-term monitoring of reef fishes. She has a passion to continue broadening her knowledge of shark ecology and how the changing climate will affect marine ecosystems so that it can be sustainably managed and conserved. For this reason, since 2018 she has been working as a Research Assistant for the Sharks Project. Megan assists the project as a dive and field assistant, video and data analyst, and contributes to education and outreach initiatives amongst other responsibilities and tasks.

Megan has previous experience in monitoring the hawksbill and green sea turtle populations in Costa Rica, shark and finfish populations at Christmas Island, Ashmore Reef and Cartier Islands in Australia, and the Australian sea lion population in Perth (Australia).
