Having studied Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences with the University of Namibia, I have been acquainted to the marine field. This has increased my enthusiasm about the marine science field. My pertinent experience emanates from my undergraduate career where I obtained basic science research. I have become knowledgeable about the dynamics within Namibia's Northern Benguela Ecosystem through my undergraduate research that was aimed at determining the effect of different temperature and macronutrient conditions on the growth rate of the phycotoxic phytoplankton Alexandrium tamarense within the Northern Benguela. This involved laboratory work including phytoplankton identification and hemocytometry along with the use of batch cultures.
On the other hand, I have experience in marine and fresh water aquaculture from working as an intern fisheries biologist under Namibia's Ministry of Fisheries and Marine Resources during my undergraduate career. Currently, as a master's research student, this opportunity will propel me to fulfilling my career goal of being a marine biologist
