“Every effort we take to protect the ocean is a step forward to safeguard our future, as we are all connected to the sea. Science is the key to understand those connections and find innovative solutions to solve the most pressing environmental problems facing our oceans. I strive to educate my students about the marine world and science, spark their curiosity, nurture their thirst for knowledge, and prepare them to contribute to the protection of our shared future on this planet.”
