IMS gave me opportunity to pursue a PhD in Marine Science. It was during this time I got opportunity to travel and gain experiences and actually fall in love with coral reef ecosystem. This has changed my life completely as I did my Masters in dryland vegetation ecology. I real enjoy working with coral reefs
