I am a PhD candidate at the University of Adelaide, I love all things coast and marine, with a special interest in marine plants. My research looks at using environmental DNA buried in the sediment profiles of coastal plant communities to reconstruct how they have changed through time. I enjoy teaching and am the secretary of the Biology Society of South Australia. I love surfing, diving and snorkelling- basically anything to do with the ocean and I am there. I love travelling and hope to use my degree to promote public interest in the beauty of the marine environment so that we can work towards conserving it for the future.
