I am a second year PhD student in Life Sciences and the School of Geography, University of Leeds, studying macrofaunal communities and trophic ecology in chemosynthetic ecosystems of the southern ocean.
I also own/ operate an OpenROV - talk to me about using it if you're interested in underwater vehicles for research/
