Nutrition aquaculturist with a focus on marine species and sustainability. Through my past experiences I have had the opportunity to work with experts at internationally recognized institutes and accumulate knowledge and skills geared towards my professional career. Main interests lay in open ocean, recirculating and multitrophic aquaculture systems with a strong focus on fish nutrition and aquafeeds. In 2020, I received a Masters of Science in Aquaculture at the Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science at the University of Miami. The topic was to test feeds where fishmeal had been completely replaced by plant-based meals in locally farmed rabbitfish (Siganus lineatus) feed in Palau, Micronesia. Extensive research has also been carried out on on how to utilize insect meal to produce aquafeeds in a sustainable and economical manner. Currently, I am carrying out a PhD on nutrition focused on endogenous markers, digestibility, and bio-energetics of cobia (Rachycentron canadum).
