Ms Regan Drennan is a postgraduate research student within Ocean and Earth Science, National Oceanography Centre Southampton at the University of Southampton.

Regan is currently working on the phylogenetics and phylogeography of Antarctic benthic annelids, with a focus on the evolutionary origins of under ice shelf communities. Has a background in annelid phylogenetics, taxonomy, and systematics, with previous work on largely undescribed deep-sea annelid faunas from abyssal plain environments where deep-sea mining may occur in the near future. Academic history includes MSc in Taxonomy & Biodiversity from Imperial College London (2016–2017) and BA (Mod) in Zoology from University of Dublin, Trinity College.
