As an outdoor enthusiast captivated by natural landscapes and wildlife, throughout my academic endeavours I have striven to frame my wide array of interests in a manner that benefits nature conservation. While working towards an engineering degree in Applied Science, my research aimed to make use of the particular benefits of Optical methods – namely, Digital Holography – to examine different biological and environmental samples and phenomena. I then delved deeper into the scope of environmental issues and the corresponding ecological responses through an Erasmus Mundus Masters in Applied Ecology. For my thesis project, I used Environmental Niche Modelling to assess the possible impacts of climate change on sea turtle nesting behaviour. Currently, my interests are focused on protecting our fragile freshwater networks and how the tools of network science can facilitate pollution mitigation in these invaluable systems.
For an overview of my most recent results, check out this poster presented at the SETAC Europe 33rd Annual Meeting:

How climate change nearly ruined my thesis
Often times, in science and in life, there are many ways to define a starting point, depending on which perspective you choose. And it may well be that there is no clear cut-off point, but a more diffuse, gradual process.
This is something I’ve also experienced throughout my PhD journey. There have been many points where I had the feeling that “NOW, my PhD can begin in earnest!”.
