Hi, I'm Chloe Way and I am studying within the Southampton Marine and Maritime Institute, University of Southampton.

I am thrilled to be developing new academic and research skills during this PhD, which will highlight the severity of the issue of plastic pollution in the marine environment.

After completing my undergraduate degree in Marine Biology, I continued my education further by achieving a MSc in Tropical Marine Biology. My education so far has highlighted the real issue of plastic pollution in the ocean environment. I hope my PhD project will provide a platform to show the significance of this issue to others, encouraging change in the future.

My supervisory team crosses many disciplines, including Dr Malcolm Hudson (Geography and Environmental Science), Professor Ian Williams (Engineering and Physical Sciences), Professor John Langley (Chemistry) and Professor Robert Marsh (Ocean and Earth Sciences). This supervisory team provides the ideal base to pursue an interdisciplinary PhD project which will cover chemistry of polymers, microscopic methods, ocean modelling and environmental pollutants.
