Jamileh Javidpour

Marine biologist

Motivation to join Alliance as a mentor for Blue Growth

A sustainable blue growth economy will not be achieved without a permanent dialogue between industry and science! As a marine biologist, it is of great interest to support innovation in smart, sustainable, and inclusive growth.

Jamileh is interested in the marine food web where jellyfish (cnidarians and ctenophores) take over the top predator position or build a bloom. In the past, her research questions were revolving around the ecological role of jellies on marine ecosystems including invasion ecology, developmental biology and deep-sea ecology. Besides and more recently the interest has shifted towards the understanding of the potential to use jellyfish biomass in more applied science.
