Hoa Nguyen is a PhD student at the University of Strathclyde. During the 2017 MASTS ASM she took the opportunity to speak with some of the presenters about their work.
Hoa interviews Robert Wilson (University of Strathclyde) on his research into how offshore energy devices may affect adjacent sediments.
Here she speaks to Alice Tagliati (Heriot Watt University) about the potential damage caused by nanoparticles in sunscreens to corals.
Hoa spoke to Laura Williamson (University of Aberdeen) about her research into porpoise distribution and marine energy installations.
Dorrik Stow (Heriot Watt University) shares his research on ‘contourites’ and their implications.
Hoa discusses the potential effects of demersal fishing gear on soft sediments with researcher Matthew Pace.
She finds out how buried DC cables might affect migrating and electro-sensitive species with Zoë Hutchison (Cranfield University).
Bowhead whales habitually visit ‘hotspots’ to feed, but do these work alone and how will they be affected by climate change? Hoa spoke to Neil Banas (University of Strathclyde).
Marzena Dziedzicka is a PhD student at the University of Aberdeen. During the 2017 ASM she interviewed researcher Guiseppe Calise who has been designing a sensor frame for use in high energy environments, where stability is a major challenge.
