Senior Lecturer at Environmental and Marine Biology, Åbo Akademi University
With excellent field stations, stunning marine habitats are just around the corner – Sea your future at Åbo Akademi University
The ocean has given me so much in my life that I felt doing marine research and teaching marine biology is the least I can do to save the sea for my kids to enjoy.
I like the size of ÅA, big enough to be a critical mass, but simultaneously small enough to rapidly test and develop new strategies across disciplines.
We can not compete with the breadth of the biggest universities, but instead show excellence in specific core areas like marine ecology.
The staff-student ratios are beneficial for students, and my impression is that students can get personal input throughout their studies at all levels.
