Why did you decide to pursue a graduate degree?
I have always been eager to know more about nature, the oceans surrounding us, and how to better protect them. While I was completing my MSc in biological oceanography, I realized that we have done too much harm to our oceans that we have tried too little to fix. That made me decide to pursue research on policy and the sustainable use of marine resources.
Why did you decide to study at UBC?
The Institute of Oceans and Fisheries (formerly the Fisheries Centre) at UBC has been the leader of fisheries research. The multidisciplinary program is problem-solving oriented and has students from diverse backgrounds.
