About

Current activities

I am a Research Assistant in the Marine Ecology Group - Fisheries Research team at the University of Western Australia.

See our groups website (UWA Marine Ecology Group) for current projects.

Background

I grew up in Perth and completed my Bachelor of Science in Physical and Analytical Chemistry with a second major in Marine Science, at UWA in 2016. After finishing my undergraduate degree, I decided that a chemistry lab wasn’t for me. I began my Masters degree in Marine Biology in the second half of 2016, under the supervision of Dr. Tim LangloisDr. Jane PrinceDr. Jordan GoetzeDr. Joachim Claudet, and Dr. Lauric Thiault. My research found that marine reserves in Mo’orea, French Polynesia, decrease fish wariness but do not increase abundance. I now work in the UWA Marine Ecology Group Fisheries research lab as a research assistant for Dr. Tim Langlois.
