Dr Hayley Evers-King

Earth Observation Scientist

Contact Details


Hayley works on the development of a broad range of applications relating to satellite ocean colour data. From ocean heat flux, to carbon content, phytoplankton cell size, plume detection, algorithm development, and satellite and model validation. She also manages two projects providing expert support and delivering training with EUMETSAT under the European Commission Copernicus Programme. She is a keen science communicator involved in MOOCs, YouTube videos, social media outreach, blogs, and recently gave her first TEDx talk.
