My summer internship at SWIMS
Just had an exciting ‘two-week’ summer internship at The Swire Institute of Marine Science (SWIMS) in Hong Kong. Many thanks to Prof. Baker for allowing me to be in his lab – which is really ‘everywhere’ — from the work bench within SWIMS at Cape D’Aguilar, where I got to work with Phil to quantify photo effects on coral/algae symbiosis, to ‘sitting in’ on department seminars with the folks from the Baker Lab on the HKU main campus, to ‘exploring and snorkeling’ Lantau and Nine Pins Islands, where Nico led us in surveying and collecting coral specimens for “paleoecological studies.”
Exciting projects and truly fun and smart people! I learned a lot.
