Director and Head of Oceanic Chemistry
From a young age Michael Sayers has had a fascination with the natural world and how it functions. In particular his interests were drawn towards the link between the biological and chemical elements. This led him to choose an education which focused on how the world works at the chemical and molecular level. In 2010 he attained his BSc. in Chemistry with Biomolecular Sciences from Bangor University and then went on to achieve a MSc. in Biomolecules for Medicine. Since graduating, his career has focused on chemical aspects of the world ranging from medical device research and development to hazardous waste management and lab testing. Now a keen scuba diver working towards his PADI Divemaster status, Michael’s eyes have been opened to the marine world and the challenges that face all life under the water. Being from a chemical background gives Michael a unique perspective on the devastating effects of human activity on the marine world. He believes that the application of chemical theory will play a big role in finding solutions to many of the environmental issues we face today. Michael strives to continually broaden his appreciation for the natural world and aims to help combat negative impacts on the environment across the entire ecosphere.
