Michelle Treloar’s passion in marine sciences began in 1994 when she undertook the Diploma of Marine Studies at the Bay of Plenty Polytechnic in New Zealand. This soon led to a career as a Scuba Diver Instructor and manager of a dive shop. After finding out she wanted to take her studies further she moved to Australia and ventured on with a BSc (Hons) and finally graduated from Deakin University in 2009 with her PhD on the ‘Aspects of the Life History of Skates from Southeast Australia’.
Michelle’s research focuses are on chondrichthyans, conservation, fisheries management and education.
