Event Programme


Dr LAURA RIBERO is a marine and freshwater ecologist and biologist, currently working at Dublin City University as postdoctoral researcher.

Her work has been focusing mainly on ecology and biodiversity of benthic macrofauna in temperate and tropical coastal areas. In the past years Laura has investigated intertidal marine ecosystems and brackish-freshwater wetlands in the Mediterranean Sea and in south-east Asia, and now she is working on citizen science and freshwater quality in Ireland.

Laura is interested in utilising ecological data to support conservation and restoration efforts in aquatic ecosystems, and she strongly believes that involving the general public is essential to achieve long-term sustainability goals.


While admission is FREE to this event, registration is REQUIRED. Please secure your place by booking here.


Urban Citizen’s 6.3.2 is a DCU-based citizen science project aimed at monitoring water quality and biodiversity of Dublin’s rivers and streams.

Volunteers from the general public and community groups are collecting data on a monthly basis, playing a crucial role in gathering information on the current status of these freshwater bodies, and showing how citizens can become precious allies of researchers and local authorities in tackling environmental issues.
