Upon the completion of my BSc (hons) in Aquaculture and Fisheries science in 2015, I became more interested in climate change research, more specifically potential impacts of ocean acidification on coastal fisheries. Since my undergraduate studies, I have always been fascinated by physiology of animals in general and when I came across “aquatic ecophysiology” with the emphasis on climate change effects, I saw my future right in front of my eyes. Aside from focusing on my studies, I spend much of my time outdoors with friends. I’m a big fan of sports, especially cricket and soccer.
