In September 2022, eXXpedition Ambassador, Taylor Maddalene was invited to present the findings from our Caribbean research paper at the 7th IMDC in Busan.

Taylor is a PhD Student in Environmental Engineering. She is also the Director of the Circularity Assessment Protocol with the Jambeck Research Group at the University of Georgia. Taylor joined us for the 2nd Virtual Voyage to Fiji.

Held every four years, the IMDC saw Taylor present to a diverse range of stakeholders about the findings from our Caribbean Circularity Assessment Protocol.

Attended by academic, industrial, and governmental officials from around the world, it is great to see our Ambassadors continuing to make an impact back on land, and our research being presented on such an international stage.

Check out this for a brief introduction from Taylor, about what she got up to whilst in Busan.
