My main role in the Marine Ecology Group - Fisheries Lab is assisting with the research conducted by Dr. Dianne McLean, running and maintaining laboratoy equipment, and helping post-graduate students with their studies. Our main research focus, at this stage, is on fish ecology and associations with offshore infrastructure in Western Australia. As a research assistant my responsibilities include field data collection, video and statistical analysis, as well as assisting in the writing and publication of research.

About me

Originally from Hong Kong, I grew up in southern England before attending the University of Sheffield and graduating with honours in Zoology. I then moved to Perth in order to complete a Master of Biological Sciences, focused on marine biology, at UWA. This research on ontogenetic shifts in the emperor species Lethrinus punctulatus was conducted in the Marine Ecology Group - Fisheries Research Lab with Dr. Dianne McLean, Dr. Tim Langlois and Camilla Piggott as my supervisors. On completing my Masters in 2016 I started working in the Marine Ecology Group - Fisheries Research Lab as a Research Assistant using stereo-video to better understand fish ecology and communities associated with artificial structures off the coast of Western Australia.
