Eric completed his undergraduate degree with a B.Sc. in General Biology at UBC in 2013 and had the opportunity to work for the Changing Oceans Research Unit (CORU). He quickly gained a fascination for marine ecology and pursued a position at Sea Around Us as a Research Assistant in 2014. He has since been a part of the verification process and currently works on data extraction and quality assurance. In his spare time, Eric enjoys the outdoor life; particularly sports and hiking.
