Sam is an avid diver, educator and a coral scientist. Her research centers around the restoration of coral reefs in Southeast Asia, particularly in Singapore. Spending countless hours underwater has given Sam firsthand experience of the detrimental effects of human activities on marine environments, including the issue of marine debris. With a strong desire to raise awareness about marine debris, Sam co-founded Our Singapore Reefs, a community initiative that connects like-minded marine enthusiasts through diving and educational programmes. Through her training in science communication, Sam hopes to inspire a greater sense of marine stewardship and promote discussions on marine science and conservation through various public engagement activities.
