Aurelie Godin

Ph.D. Candidate, Industrial Graduate Fellow, WWF-Canada

A Montreal native, Aurelie's passion for the ocean arose during her undergraduate years where she started scuba diving. She moved to Nova Scotia in 2008 to do a Master in Marine Management at Dalhousie University where she completed her thesis' project on improving shark conservation and management policies in Canada. This master's project was in partnership with WWF-Canada where she interned during the summer. She continued working with WWF-Canada in developing their shark conservation campaign before taking another internship position with the Pew Global Shark Campaign in Washington DC. Since then, her work has primarily focused on the topic of shark bycatch on which she is currently pursuing her doctoral study in the Department of Biology at Dalhousie University under the supervision of marine biologist Dr. Boris Worm.
