I’m a marine biologist and a communicator. I love doing science and I am passionate about sharing science with others.
What science do you do?
I’m interested in biodiversity, community based management, citizen science and influencing decision-making.
For my ongoing PhD research, I’m discovering which fish are living where. To do this on a large scale, we don’t catch the fish (that would take too long and be way too expensive). Instead we collect seawater and look for the DNA that is floating around in that water. We can then match the DNA in the water to the species that it belongs to, and ta-da! Just like that, from a cup of water, we can start to answer questions about which fish are living in which waters.
What communication work do you do?
In addition to doing science, I like to connect the dots. I offer communication services, where we can work together to communicate your science. My skillset ranges from concept design to graphics, writing, web tinkering and more. Get in touch to see how we can make some magic happen.
Where can I see some of your work?
To find out more about the scientific research I’ve been involved in (past and present), I welcome you to read some of the stories on my work experience page.
Otherwise, if you’re here for the cartoons- head on over to my scicomm page to see some of the projects that I’ve worked on, or to the Teacher-Zone to download my recent teaching materials for free.
