Inti Keith

Principal Investigator Marine Invasive Species Project

Inti has worked with the CDRS in different marine projects since 2010, including shark tagging, sea turtle monitoring and ecological monitoring before completing her PhD on Marine Invasive Species in the Galapagos Marine Reserve. She now leads the Marine Invasive Species Programme and the long term Subtidal Ecological Monitoring Programme as well as being the science group coordinator for the Eastern Tropical Pacific Marine Corridor initiative (CMAR)

Her interests lie in understanding the current status of the Galapagos Marine Reserve and evaluate the impacts non-native species can have on marine biodiversity, ecosystem services and the health of the GMR. As part of her research she is interested in the connectivity that exists between the different Marine Protected Areas in the region, which is why she has expanded her research throughout the Eastern Tropical Pacific region.

She is a member of the IUCN Species Survival Commission (SSC) Invasive Species Specialist Group and the Galapagos Plant Specialist group as well as having on going collaborations with the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC), Southampton University and the University of Malaga.
