Current employer: Reef Guru
Current job title: Co-founder; Director
Current location: Canada
“Plymouth is home to a number of marine organisations (The Marine Biological Association, Plymouth Marine Laboratory, Shark Trust, etc.) which provide countless opportunities for volunteering, collaborations, and networking. For me, two separate bouts of volunteering at the MBA led to further research positions overseas through connections and referrals.”
Tell us what you have been doing since completing your studies.
I have been working for various non-profit research companies around the world, including The Manta Trust, Save Our Seas Foundation, OceansWatch, and Cape Eleuthera Institute, with extensive travelling in between.
What is the best, most exciting or fun thing that you have done in your career?
The most fun thing would be free diving with manta rays to collect data or catching green turtles by hand. The most exciting would be the recent creation of a coral reef conservation, eco-training, and consultancy organisation called Reef Guru with fellow Plymouth graduate Lucy Fisher.
