Angela grew up in Beijing, China, one of the most populous cities in the world, where the concrete jungle inspired her to pursue education in the natural landscapes of British Columbia, and in a discipline closely related to the very nature she has always been fascinated with. She is currently completing a BA in Geography: Environment and Sustainability with a minor in Environmental Science at UBC. Outside of her studies, she is also working as a museum interpreter at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum and is currently a research assistant with the Centre for Sustainable Food Systems.
Angela is interested in sustainable resource management and conservation sciences and has always been interested in how fisheries data can promote marine ecosystem-based management strategies. She is excited to be a part of the Sea Around Us, where she will be assisting the fisheries catch reconstruction project.
In her downtime, she likes to be outside, either running or going on a long walk while listening to podcasts.
