In July 2023, we welcomed a new postgraduate student to the lab!

Sharad Bayyana – PhD Candidate

Sharad joined the lab in July 2023 as a PhD candidate under the supervision of Dr John Pandolfi and Dr Sun W. Kim. He comes from India, where he was engaged in several marine and wildlife research projects since completing his master’s in marine biology in 2017. He also holds a post-graduate diploma in Remote Sensing and GIS from Indian Institute of Remote Sensing. For his PhD, he will pursue the implications of climate-driven risks on the biodiversity dynamics under future emission projections. The project aims to quantifying adaptive and migration responses as vulnerability metrics, that will provide resource managers with novel tools to formulate flexible management strategies.
