Mads is an MSc tropical marine biologist, dive-master and founder of non-profit organisation, Women in Ocean Science. Originally from the UK, her obsession with the enthralling world of coral reefs has taken her across the globe. From marine bioacoustics to mega-fauna, she has a diverse background in tropical marine research, with a particular focus on manta rays. Seeing the destruction of the marine environment first-hand, in recent years Mads has also transitioned from scientist to an ocean advocate. She has channeled her energy into becoming a freelance underwater photographer and content creator, to document the changing world through her media and apparel company, Blu Wild.
