Amber has six years of international and domestic experience working in the offshore oil and gas industry. She is an oceanographer, marine conservation biologist, and oil and gas consultant. As co-founder of Blue Latitudes, she navigates science, policy, and economics to create comprehensive, sustainable and environmental solutions for the issues surrounding offshore oil and gas decommissioning. Her expertise is unique, specializing in the development of offshore technologies, ecological assessments of offshore resources using ROVs, and habitat restoration through the Rigs-to-Reefs program. A former Ocean Curator at Google, she engineered and launched intelligent layers in Google Earth and Google Maps that distill and relate complex concepts in ocean science for a variety of audiences. Today she uses those skills in the oil and gas industry to map fishing activity in proximity to offshore structures and inform decommissioning decisions in relation to commercial fisheries.
