Miranda Krestovnikoff (née Harper-Jones, born 1973 in Buckinghamshire, Englandmarker) is a television presenter specialising in natural history and archaeological programmes. She is also a qualified diver which has led to co-presenting opportunities in programmes with an underwater element.

Miranda went to school in Readingmarker before taking up a place at the University of Bristolmarker to study zoology. Whilst at Bristol, she became interested in filmmaking of wildlife and the environment and gained work experience at the BBC's renowned Natural History Unit. After graduating, she worked her way up with the BBC and various Bristol-based wildlife production companies to a position of researcher. Her first presenting role was in the Fox Television programme World Gone Wild in 1999.

Since 2000, she has presented a number of programmes in the field of diving. Water Warriors was a Carlton children's production exploring the marine environment. Krestovnikoff then worked as a pet expert in the children's television show SMILE, and on the 2003–2004 Channel 4 series Wreck Detectives. Continuing the history/archaeology theme, Krestovnikoff presented the BBC2 series Hidden Treasure. A major project in the summer of 2004 was the UKTV History/Anglia Television production Time Trail, which focused on local history in the East Anglianmarker region.

Krestovnikoff was one of five presenters for the BBC2 series Coast, first broadcast in 2005, which brought her to greater public attention. The coast of Britain and its natural and human history were explored in detail, with Krestovnikoff presenting a natural history segment in each episode. Concurrently, she appeared as a guest presenter on the BBC1 Countryfile programme with John Craven. During summer 2005, Krestovnikoff filmed for a BBC2 and Open Universitymarker production, entitled History Mysteries.

Apart from her television work, Krestovnikoff has presented the Breakfast programme on BBC Radio 3, writes articles for Diver magazine, engages in public speaking, charity work, enjoys diving holidays and playing in the New Bristol Sinfonia orchestra.

Krestovnikoff is also a passionate marine conservationist and presents for The Underwater Channel on the work of marine and wildlife charities, with other presenters such as Monty Halls.
