Dr. Daria Hinz, an American-born Scientist with an honours degree in Biology from Harvard University and a doctorate in Ocean and Earth Science from the University of Southampton, joined Brookes Bell in early 2011 and became a partner in 2016.
Prior to joining, she carried out academic research in phytoplankton ecology and ocean chemistry and completed two research cruises on the RRS James Clark Ross with the British Antarctic Survey. Daria has extensive experience advising on the ocean carriage of a variety of bagged and bulk commodities including grains, agricultural goods, fruits and vegetables, mineral ores, and chemicals. She frequently investigates commodities in situ, carrying out ship-board surveys, land-based surveys of stockpile sites and warehouses, and witnessing laboratory analyses. Daria has specific expertise in biological systems and has carried out investigations into the origins of hold infestations and hull fouling, the suitability of ballast water management systems, and the impact of the release of dangerous goods on the environment.
