Marine Mammal Science MSc students meet Dr Asha de Vos

One woman whale show!

The Marine Mammal Science MSc students met with the inspirational and charismatic cetacean scientist, Dr Asha de Vos. As a St Andrew’s alumni herself, Asha proved to the excited and awe-stricken students that the sky is no longer the limit!

She spoke animatedly to a captive audience about the struggles that she overcame in reaching her goal of becoming a marine biologist. Asha founded and directs the NGO Oceanswell which aims to educate the next generation of students from under-represented nations in marine conservation research.
