- Postgraduate research student
I graduated from the University of Southampton in 2009 with a Masters of Marine Biology. I then headed back home to Trinidad and Tobago where I worked at the Institute of Marine Affairs in their Fisheries and Aquaculture Department. In October 2010, I decided to return to the University of Southampton to pursue a PhD in organic falls. My PhD research has me based half at the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton and the other half at the Natural History Museum, London.
Chemosynthetic ecosystems (whale falls, wood falls, hydrothermal vents and cold seeps), deep-sea biology and ecology, invertebrate reproductive biology, marine conservation.
Stepping stones in the deep sea: organic falls from contrasting tropical and polar environments. (Graduate School of NOCS Postgraduate Research Scholarship)
