I am originally from the Sunshine Coast, but completed my undergraduate degree here at JCU. Since late 2015, I have been an intern in Dr. Jodie Rummer’s lab, where I have been working closely with Sybille Hess (PhD candidate) investigating how suspended sediments can impair oxygen uptake in coral reef fishes. I am now starting my Master’s research with Drs. Jodie Rummer and Naomi Gardiner. Specifically, I am examining the gills of coral reef fishes in hopes of understanding the changes they make when they experience increased temperatures during a coral bleaching event.
