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.
