AIMS@UWA Research Symposium 2022
In late October, the OI in partnership with the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) was delighted to host the second annual AIMS@UWA
Research Symposium, held at OceanWorks in the Indian Ocean Marine Research Centre (IOMRC).
Early career marine researchers, Higher Degree by Research (HDR) students (PhD) within the AIMS@UWA
alliance had the opportunity to showcase their research specialisations through short 5 minute oral presentations to an enthusiastic audience. Topics were diverse, spanning tropical-water hydrodynamics, environmental DNA (eDNA), coral resilience and adaptation, coral-fish interactions on coral reefs to the spatial and trophic ecology of whale shark populations.
About the AIMS@UWA alliance:
Launched in November 2020, the AIMS@UWA
Alliance links the University of Western Australia and the Australian Institute of Marine Science to employ academics, co-fund early career postdoctoral researchers, and grow the community of higher degree by research Masters and PhD students working primarily on tropical marine science. Our ambition is to undertake fundamental research with impact, linking with the needs of local communities, industry partners and other stakeholders by providing the scientific information needed for best practice ocean governance and management.
