Oscar, Audrey, Fede, Pierre and Kathryn representing CMER at AMSA
This year's annual AMSA conference was held at the Wrest Point hotel in Hobart, Tasmania from the 1st to the 5th of July, the location was absolutely amazing, with the Conference Centre facing the beautiful estuary. The Centre for Marine Ecosystems Research (CMER) was well represented with Kathryn, Audrey and the new post-doc researcher, Oscar Serrano who just arrived from Spain few months ago, each giving an oral presentation, and Pierre, Fede and Rozaimi presenting a poster (abstract links below).
The Poster session was on Monday night and Pierre, Fede and Oscar (representing Rozaimi for his poster) were very busy for a couple of hours answering many different questions about their research projects. Kathryn, Audrey and Oscar did very well with their talks, with good feedback from the interested audience who asked several questions about their projects. The conference ended up with a fantastic dinner gala, good food, good music and beautiful people where the ingredients of that night.
