Eva was born and raised close to Nice in southern France. Having grown up next to the Mediterranean Sea, she has always been very passionate about underwater life. She started diving at the age of 12 in Corsica where she did her open-water certification, and continued throughout the years until she completed her divemaster certification in 2014 in the Philippines, where she worked as a dive guide for 6 months. She now has more than 500 dives in many different parts of the world.
As for her educational background, Eva left home at 17 years old to complete her bachelor’s at McGill University in Montreal, with a major in water ecosystems and environments and a minor in biology. Thereafter, she completed the ‘International Master of Science in Marine Biodiversity and Conservation’ (EMBC+) with classes being offered in Portugal, France, Ireland and Sweden.
Eva wishes to direct her scientific career toward the study of elasmobranchs and has already taken part in many projects such as the study of thresher sharks in Malapascua Island in the Philippines and the study of manta rays within the Marine Megafauna Foundation in Indonesia. Having participated in “Shark Week 2016′ at the SFS Center in the Turks and Caicos Islands, she fell in love with the surrounding environment and decided to come back as an intern to help out the students going through their academic year.
