Personal profile


Amy MacIntosh is a current Natural Sciences PhD student (former MRes student) currently assessing the toxicological impacts of contaminants from decommissioned offshore oil and gas infrastructure on the marine environment.

Her ambitions and passions lie in environmental management, radioecology, ecotoxicology and showcasing the need for environmental monitoring and risk assessments from contaminants of emerging concern in the terrestrial and marine environment.

She is currently applying her inter-disciplinary backgrounds to understand current global issues relating to the effects of legacy and historic mineral extraction processes on vulnerable ecosystems.

She is collaborating with the offshore petroleum industry and federal government stakeholders to do the science behind the closure of subsea oil and gas structures, to conserve and protect Australian marine animals and the surrounding environment 🐠

Originally from Scotland and being brought up in New Zealand, she had a strong passion for studying animals by following the footsteps of her inspiration, Sir David Attenborough. She obtained a Bachelors of Science in Zoology and Geography at the University of Otago followed by a Honours in Zoology/Wildlife Ecology at the University of Tasmania.

She is also the current Faculty of Science HDR student representative, as well as the representative for the School of Natural Sciences.
