Verity Nye




Her research investigates the ecology, diversity and evolution of marine species, especially in insular chemosynthetic ecosystems in the deep ocean. This research is crucial to inform the sustainable use of marine resources and conservation strategies in our planet's largest biome. She employs molecular tools and traditional methods of taxonomy to enhance our understanding of the distribution of marine biodiversity. She interprets population genetic patterns in the context of life-history biology and distribution patterns of deep-sea species at global scale, in addition to investigating the spatial and temporal dynamics of faunal assemblages in deep-sea habitats under increasing pressure from anthropogenic impacts.

Explore the half of our world covered by deep ocean, and how our lives affect the hidden face of our planet. The first astronauts to leave the Earth’s orbit saw our “blue planet” for the first time. But what lies in the half of our world covered by water more than two miles deep? How are our everyday lives connected to the ocean depths, and what challenges and opportunities does this previously hidden realm hold for our future?
