B2/L2 - Sea Side - 2207-WS13
During my undergrate degree, at the University of Exeter, in biological sciences I specialised in Animal Biology. I was initially interested in terrestrial ecosystems, and worked with OpWall in the rainforest of Guyana for a month. After an amazing field trip to San Salvador Island in the Bahamas, my interests shifted to marine systems, in particular coral reefs. I was able to explore this field more during a year abroad at the University of Queensland in Australia, during which I also learnt to SCUBA dive.
After graduating, I moved to the University of Leeds to continue my studies through a Masters by Research with Dr Maria Beger. Here I leant about spatial planning and carried out a project demonstrating the importance of considering small-scale heterogeneity in conservation planning. I have come to KAUST as an intern to continue this work in a different system- the Red Sea.
