Hello Science Fans!
I’m Chona Camille VinceCruz-Abeledo, a Filipina scientist and Teacher.
This site is dedicated to sharing [fun] info about research in the Philippines [and all over the world]. I will also use it as a platform to encourage critical thinking about current events that affect and are affected by science [so pretty much everything!]. I also hope to discuss art, literature and popular media within the sci-fan genre.
As a scientist, I am the coordinator of the Br. Alfred Shields FSC Marine Station (BrAMS) of the De La Salle University. This is a research facility in Lian, Batangas. I also lead research projects that help fishers, farmers, and environmental managers in species identification, efficient resource use, mitigating climate change impacts, and even plastic pollution! We study different plants and animals, from mangrove crabs, sea weed, crown of thorns starfish, and more.
Yep, consider this my invitation to geek out!
Follow your (con)science.
