Beautiful #FlindersReef is a subtropical paradise just on #Brisbane’s doorstep. This week I’ve been confined to the office but I’ve been lucky to help analyse some epic #citizenscience data from the #MoretonBay area that suggests Flinders is among the healthiest #coral #reefs in #SEQueensland! @reefcheckaustralia @queensland
Happy Friday everyone! #leopardshark #ninemilereef
Three years ago today that I was on Heron Island Research Station sciencing with these three! Since this photo in the rinse tank they've been off on adventures chasing aurora borealis in the Arctic circle, protecting whales in the Southern Ocean and doing important science work on corallines in beautiful Scotland. So proud of these strong women divers who take their passion for the marine environment wherever they go! But it's been three years so I think it's definitely time for another bath 😂 @wdhof @paditv #WomeninSTEM

Look what grew in our #veggie patch! I planted these #aubergines from seed last year and am super excited they actually grew into actual real veggies! With the #IPCCreport's warning that we need to work together towards keeping the planet below 1.5degrees of warming, one way to reduce your #CO2footprint is eat less meat and more yummy #veggies! #oceanoptimism #climatechange

This weekend we have mostly been making native bee hives #nativebees #nativebeesaustralia #woodwork #conservation
How fab is this fatty little #Acroporahumilis? I think I only saw purple and brown ones before!

Sooo much beautiful coral! Doesn’t get much better than a random mid-week coral collecting dive - thanks @isopora!

Today I made a #pledge of #commitment to the beautiful country of #Australia. At the #citizenship ceremony we were all given a native plant. Mine is just little but if I take good care of it one day it will be a beautiful #calistimon tree full of lorikeets!

#HomewardBound is an initiative to increase the visibility of #WomeninSTEM. I’m thrilled to have been selected as part of the fourth cohort alongside female scientists from 25 disciplines and 33 countries! In November this year I’ll start a year long adventure with these three @uniofqld scientists and 91 others, that will culminate in an expedition to #Antarctica! #TeamHB4 #HomewardBound @homewardboundprojects

Adventures away with work are sweet but I'm always happy to be back in #Queensland #thisisqueensland
Check out what my lab have been up to this year! #CoralTriangle #IYOR2018 #OceanOptimism @theoceanagency @anjganase @dom.snoopy.bryant @markeykat @uniofqld @officialpaulallen ...thanks for @stefan.andrews for covering our research!

my morning #commute to the office involves a boardwalk stroll across a turtle-filled lake, noisy lorikeets and cockatoos wheeling across the sky! #lovemyjob #campuslife

Watching the #sunrise over #Brisbane this morning from the top of Mount Coot-tha makes me realise how lucky I am to live and work in this beautiful jungly city!

Introducing visitors to our local #sequeensland marine life is one of my favourite parts of working for @brisbanediveacademy #padi #brisbane #loggerhead #loggerheadturtle #diving
