Information: Giulia identifies as a biodork. She was raised in the Pacific by a marine biologist. During her undergraduate studies at the University of Washington, she made up for the absence of a Marine Biology major by pursuing an interdisciplinary major in Environmental Studies and taking every available biological oceanography and fisheries class that was not specialized to the Pacific Northwest. She graduated magna cum laude in 2013 and returned to the South Pacific via volunteer work in Fiji in 2015.

In 2016, Giulia began graduate work at the University of the South Pacific in Suva. Although she originally intended to focus on ecology and aquaculture of sea cucumbers, by early 2017 she transitioned to population genetics of tuna. Giulia completed her PhD in early 2019 and spent the year publishing three thesis chapters (with a fourth still in progress) while serving as the chapter scientist for the Small Islands chapter of the IPCC 6th Assessment Report (Working Group II).

Even when it's not for school or work, chances are Giulia is around the ocean. She is an avid outrigger paddler but will also surfski, flatwater kayak, paddle board or stand up paddle board as the opportunity arises. But, no, she doesn't surf-surf.
