DR. IMOGEN NAPPER
Imogen is a Post Doctoral Researcher at The University of Plymouth. Her research investigates the sources of plastic pollution into the environment. In 2018, Imogen became a National Geographic Explorer and Sky Ocean Rescue Scholar. This funded her ongoing research to investigate different inventions which aim to capture fibres in the washing machine cycle, to stop them potentially entering the environment.
Currently, Imogen is working as an expedition scientist with National Geographic on the ‘Sea to Source’ expedition investigating plastic pollution in the River Ganges.

Prior to her experiences in ELT, she worked as a Conference Producer travelling the globe far and wide until a chance encounter with a seal whilst out sea swimming led her to become a monthly subscriber to the National Geographic Magazine. A firm believer in making language learning more relevant, effective and motivating for teachers and students alike, Catherine now greatly enjoys working with National Geographic Learning’s inspirational material, helping teachers bring the world to their classroom and their classroom to life.
