She is Kiri Reihana, a Te Puke PhD student from the University of Waikato in New Zealand. 

There is only  one  grant  of fellowship  in New Zealand each year and ocean scientist Kiri is the first Māori PhD student to receive the award. 

According to the New Zealand Herald,  Kiri is a mother of four who lives in Te Puke and says as a student she's always looking around for funding and other learning opportunities, so when she saw the mentorship she decided to apply.
