Meet the next generation of deep-sea researchers

This section features short bios of students and early-career researchers of the deep-sea biology community.  The aim is promote the next generation of deep-sea researchers and the diverse skillset that they harbour, focusing on under-represented groups such as Black, Indigenous and/or People of Colour, in order to inspire younger audiences, and increase diversity, inclusivity and equity in our field.
