Dr Raeanne Miller Marine

Dr Raeanne Miller Marine Scientist Scottish Association for Marine Science Selected to be part of the inaugural Homeward Bound project: expedition to Antarctica. Raeanne’s energy, enthusiasm, and passion for science and communication permeate her work as a marine ecologist at the Scottish Association for Marine Science. She added a strong entrepreneurial spirit to this mix after winning the UK NERC Environment YES (Young Entrepreneurs Scheme) competition with a team of PhD students in 2010. Now, she focuses on bringing together marine scientists, policymakers and the marine renewable energy industry to find new applications for cutting-edge marine science. As a strong advocate of public engagement with science, she has worked with schools, developed activities for music festivals and delivered public lectures to encourage an ongoing dialogue around both renewable energy development and marine science across diverse audiences. This year, she was selected to take part in the inaugural Homeward Bound project: a once-in-a-lifetime expedition to Antarctica and the start of a 10-year initiative to build a 1,000-strong global collaboration of women in science, who have had the same experience and opportunity to develop leadership skills to work together towards a sustainable future for the planet. 18
