My name is...
Hello! My name is Danielle Kelly, I was recently accepted on the Marine Dynamics Academy Scientific Internship along with Gary Lyon and Emma Butterworth. Here, we will be posting a blog every Sunday about our week as interns!
More about me… I am from Canada and I’m currently working towards developing a career in shark biology. I am doing this internship to gain more knowledge and experience with the research methodologies used in this biodiversity hot spot, Dyer island. Stay tuned to hear about my experience with the internship program and learn about some of the cool stuff were doing out here as interns.
Hi, my name is Gary Lyon and I am from Yorkshire in England. I studied Ecology and Environmental Biology at the University of Leeds and graduated in 2015. After volunteering with International Marine Volunteers, four times over a 5-year period, I was thrilled to be accepted onto the Marine Dynamics Academy Scientific Internship. I feel the internship will give me an amazing opportunity to gain a wide range of skills that will not only enhance my employability potential, but also give me the chance to try out new hobbies such as fishing and photography.
Hello, my name is Emma Butterworth and I’m from Surrey, also in England. I am currently on a gap year before starting at Swansea University in September to study Marine Biology. I have had a lifelong passion for animals (particularly marine). After volunteering with Marine Dynamics for 6 weeks earlier this year I was glad to be able to accepted onto the Internship. I believe that this experience will help kickstart my career in Marine Biology. I hope to learn a range of valuable practical skills and broadening my knowledge in this field.
