Andrei Polejack is the Coordinator for Ocean Science and Antarctica of the Brazilian Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation. With a BSc degree in Biology and MSc in Ecology, he was able to bridge Science and Policy in issues related to Ocean and Antarctic.

Because of his commitment to the programme, he was elected in 2010 to be the Alumni Network Representative, position he proudly took until 2013.
