Ivana-Maria Carrioni-Burnett
Advisory Board Manager

Ivana-Maria Carrioni-Burnett is our Advisory Board Manager, which involves her coordinating the work of our esteemed advisory board members. She served for over 11 years as an Officer in the Royal Navy, where she held a range of roles in hydrographics, and navigation, before becoming an instructor at HMS Collingwood, the largest naval training establishment in Europe. During her service, she has seen first-hand the lack of human rights protections at sea, and it is this that has inspired her to work with Human Rights at Sea. Ivana now works as a Marine Pilot on the River Thames with the Port of London Authority. She is a Freeman of the Honourable Company of Master Mariners, an Associate Fellow of the Royal Institute of Navigation, and a member of Maritime UK. She is also a leading advocate for female representation in the maritime space and is a member of WISTA as well as a participant in the 'Lean In' working group for women on the Thames: Women on the Water.
