I am an Ichthyologist/marine scientist (PhD candidate) who has always had a passion for the sea and all marine creatures. I focus on climate change research and how temperature specifically has an influence on marine fishes and invertebrates in estuaries and intertidal rock pools. I enjoy playing underwater hockey. Recreationally, I enjoy free-diving and fishing in my spare time.
