Marina Luccioni

I am a biologist and visual artist who works on projects that interface knowledge and scientific methods from local, indigenous and western academic sources. 


As a PhD Student in the Crowder and O'Connell labs at Stanford University and an NSF Graduate Research Fellow I am interested in work which values knowledges and practices from local communities to inform our understanding of mental health and inspire community connection with the land and seaTo this end, I collaborate with coastal communities in Hawaiʻi and in the Mediterranean to develop programs for monitoring, studying and stewarding keystone and culturally important marine species including Goatfish, Moi and Cuttlefish. In the lab I research overlaps between human and environmental health, specifically how organisms come to contain and accumulate neurotoxins, and the ways their molecules interact with human neural function to produce altered mental states.

My family are from Corsica and Indonesia, and grew up in London, UK spending summers in Corsica and California. I love being outdoors, taking photos, making short experimental films and experimental food! I share curated short film lists named after cheeses on this site
