After 25 years of writing for computer science firms, a dive trip to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef resulted in an epiphany: “Marine biology will be my new direction”.

Now that my scholastic challenges have been met, I am eager to apply my knowledge, skills and experience toward:

  • Increasing aquaculture productivity
  • Building capacity to restore and enhance marine ecosystems
  • Informing policy
  • Increasing socio-economic and cultural benefits
  • Developing hands-on education programmes
  • Implementing marine stewardship programmes through citizen-based science activities, and
  • Effectively communicating science and its relevance to multiple audiences.

Let’s work together for a stronger, healthier marine environment.
