Kaya is a marine ecologist currently working on her M.Sc. thesis at the University of Agder in Kristiansand. She also works part time as a communications officer at GRID-Arendal where she is responsible for a variety of tasks concerning comms. On her spare time she is usually found outdoors with her dog and her boyfriend, in the sofa knitting or somewhere by (or in) the ocean. She has a passion for science communication and believes that spreading awareness is one of the most powerful tools to use when saving the world (which she is currently working on). She is therefore very excited to be a part of TEDxArendal’s Communications, Marketing & Media team.
