A deep-ocean geologist with a passion for coral-reef conservation

I have always been attracted to the earth processes side of things. As a young kid, this was the more volcanology and palaeontology side of things. This led me to pursue a degree in Geology, where I was introduced more in-depth to Quaternary science (which basically means everything from 2.5 or so million years ago to now). What I love about being a geoscientist is I get to visit incredible places, work with other like-minded folk and get to contribute to our future as a civilization.
