Jónína Herdís Ólafsdóttir is a biologist and a National geographic grantee. She is extremely passionate for the natural world, science and adventure. Jónína was introduced to scuba diving early on and became fascinated with how the skill could take her to pristine, extreme, and even “other worldly” environments. Her love for the underwater realm shapes her research interests and she is currently focusing on mapping biodiversity in groundwater-filled fissures in Iceland.
