Senior Project Manager, EOMAP Australia
Emily Twiggs is a geoscientist that represents EOMAP throughout the Australasia region. Originally from England, Emily moved to Australia 20 years ago after completing her degree in Geological Sciences. During her time travelling around Australia, Emily became a divemaster and whale shark spotter on the Ningaloo Reef, an experience which cemented her love for the ocean and marine science. For the last 15 years, Emily has gained a broad range of experience during her PhD research and work life (Curtin University, Australian Institute of Marine Science and Fugro Airborne Surveys), in using remote sensing and geospatial analysis alongside ground-truthing techniques, to map the bathymetry, geomorphology, sedimentology and benthic habitats of coastal, coral reef, continental shelf and terrestrial environments. As Director for Oceanwise Australia, she also ran research-based whale shark and coral reef ecotours, educational programs, and environmental services on the Ningaloo Coast World Heritage Area and elsewhere in Western Australia. For the last 2.5 years, Emily has worked as Senior Project Manager with EOMAP based in Perth (WA) and has been involved in many exciting mapping projects within the region.
