Having completed his internship and training with ATMEC, Tommy has now joined the team as a researcher and supporting instructor at the program. During his training, Tommy was certified to teach the Ecological Monitoring Program, and gained experience in a large array of reef-associated skills such as giant clam surveys and anthozoan taxonomy. Alongside his role as an instructor, he is also responsible for maintaining boat and laboratory facilities as well as conducting his own research on seaslugs and coral reef ecology.
