Cassandra has worked as a marine fisheries and conservation scientist in shark fisheries, management, and research across government, academia and NGOs over the past 20 years. First delving into the shark world through shark finning issues in the late 1990s, Cassandra has since been involved with Australian shark fisheries sustainability, deep water sharks’ life history (PhD), CITES capacity building for sharks and rays, and efficacy of marine protected areas for shark and ray conservation. More recently, Cassandra contributed to ecological risk assessments of southern Oceans deepwater sharks, risk summaries of all Australian sharks, and developed WWF tools to improve shark management and conservation in developing countries.
