Danielle Su (France, member): Danielle started her journey as an oceanographer moving from one island (Singapore) to another (Australia) and recently completed her PhD at The University of Western Australia investigating flow topography interactions around islands in the Northern Indian Ocean. Now at the LOCEAN Laboratory in Paris, she is delving into the world of biogeochemistry. Enjoys hiking and good wine, especially if done together.
Prasad Padalkar (India, member): Prasad is a research scholar working with Prof. Parthasarthi Chakraborty at the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India. His research deals with understanding the biogeochemical cycling of mercury in tropical coastal environments. In particular, he investigates how the elemental form of mercury controls mercury pollution and the effect of climate change stressors on cycling of mercury in coastal waters.
