Dr Meynier's principal research interests are the feeding and foraging ecology of marine predators. Her current project focuses on the foraging of NZ fur seals using a combination of fatty acid analysis, stable isotope analysis and telemetry to assess the trophic niche of this predator along the coast of NZ South Island. From 2010 to 2014, Dr Meynier pursued a postdoctoral research project (FRST fellowship) within the Animal Nutrition group at IVABS, Massey University, Palmerston North, on the feeding and foraging behaviour of NZ fur seals. Prior to her postdoctoral project, she was enrolled in a PhD at IVABS, Massey University (2004-2008) on the diet of New Zealand sea lions at the Auckland Islands using fatty acid analysis on blubber. Currently, Dr Meynier works as a Marine Ecologist at Biosearches
