In this episode, host Dr. Felicia Olmeta-Schult's guest is Em Lim, a queer, non-binary MSc student in Biological Sciences at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, Canada. They will share with us their personal story that led them to study sea cucumbers, their research experiment, and why sea cucumbers are such fascinating animals. We also discuss the importance of diversity and inclusion in marine sciences. After the gut-wrenching news of hundreds of children found buried near residential schools in Canada, Em asks us if we could donate to the Indian Residential School Survivors Society: https://www.irsss.ca/donate. We hope you will enjoy this episode and join us monthly to discover new guests and their work!
