Julien Moreau ([email protected]). Julien Moreau was born in Dakar (Senegal), on the western tip of Africa, where he formed very strong bonds with the ocean and its inhabitants. Julien finished his studies in France, aiming at oceanography, he started university in biology and progressively specialized in sedimentology with an MSc (2001) and a PhD (2005). After a first postdoc, he took a geophysics postdoctoral position in Aberdeen (NE Scotland), that’s where he discovered the Scottish Highlands and the NW coast. Julien held several other academic positions in Europe until September 2016 where he moved back to Scotland in Durness, the very tip of NW Scotland. Shocked by the amount of plastic pollution in the area, they created Joan d’Arcy [email protected], a circular economy non-profit company aiming at tackling plastic pollution.
