Cristiana Damiano is an oceanographer and marine scientist with a deep passion for the ocean, sharks and exploration. She is also a naturalist, producer, presenter and photographer currently working for National Geographic Expeditions and as a scientific adviser for the underwater documentary “Eye Under the Sea”. She also was a presenter and involved with the production of “Shark Invasion” for the Hunter and Hunted TV series for National Geographic.
As an experienced dive instructor and technical diver, Cristina’s knowledge encompasses the fields of coral reef ecology, shark research and conservation, and expeditions to remote locations while focusing her work as an advocate for marine habitat and ocean protection. Her scientific knowledge about shark biology, threats and their need for conservation is an asset for the Shark Eyes team.
“Due to population increase and increased use of coastal areas, the probability of shark and human interactions are also on the rise. Non-invasive shark deterrent technologies and visual disruptors play an important role as an alternative solution to this problem. It is an honor to support Shark Eyes as an exciting and innovative technology that will provide an affordable and informative product.”
