Field Problems in Marine Biology
Offered through the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, students embark on a very unique 5-week field course at the Hawaiʻi Institute of Marine Biology on Moku o Loʻe (Coconut Island).
As an Instructor for this course, I help facilitate hands-on training in marine biology and assist the students in their directed research projects. The students learn how to operate small boats, conduct field experiments, work as a team, and solve real world problems such as coral bleaching, marine debris, and invasive species.
I routinely mentor high school, undergraduate, and graduate students in marine biology. I guide them through the scientific progress and help equip them as future managers, researchers, and conservationists.
