Today's storyteller is Aedín McAleer! Aedín currently works on the VOCAB project with NUI Galway in Ireland. She's also concurrently doing her master's studying ocean acidification! So today we talk about her work as a research assistant and master's student doing long term monitoring research with ocean acidification and climate change. We talk about how Aedín got interested in marine science, what she wants to do in the future after her master's work is finished, and about the equipment they use (and frequently troubleshoot) in their monitoring work! I had a lot of fun talking to Aedín. so enjoy!
