To use insights gathered from our long-term research to inform marine and waste policy, and to drive positive changes at the individual and community level, for the benefit of our oceans.
We pair long-term data on plastic pollution from marine, freshwater, and terrestrial environments to gain insight into trends and impacts. Our projects range from monitoring sentinel species, to developing tools to quantify sub-lethal effects following ingestion by wildlife.
Adrift Lab is comprised of research scientists, post-docs, and graduate students working on the issue of plastic pollution. Our members come from diverse backgrounds and locations all over the globe and offer a range of specialised skills, including eco-toxicology, ecological statistics, and marine biology.
Adrift Lab offers a positive and welcoming working environment. We’re often looking for new students who are committed to researching plastic pollution and its impact on the natural world.
