LIFE AS A SCIENTIST
Throughout my time as a scientist, I have worked for the state government of Florida, conducted several research projects in French Polynesia and California, and taught environmental education and citizen-based science classes in Hawaii. Currently, I assist my partner with his fish behavior research on the island of Koh Phangan in the gulf of Thailand.
