Dr. Guillermo Ortuño Crespo pursued his interest in applied marine conservation through a B.A. in Marine Biology, an M.Sc. in Ecosystem-based Management of Marine Systems at the University of St. Andrews and a doctoral degree in Marine Science & Conservation at Duke University. His Ph.D. addressed challenges in High Seas fisheries, as well as topics related to the recent negotiations for a High Seas biodiversity treaty, for which he has led or co-authored a dozen information briefs and research articles that informed Parties at the UN headquarters. In 2019, he became involved in the UN Decade of Ocean Science and, alongside other early career professionals, helped create the Early Career Ocean Professional programme.
