Lokman Norazmi is an early career researcher at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies, University of Tasmania (UTAS) where he has been working as part of an interdisciplinary research group on genetic control of pest fish. He obtained his PhD in Fisheries studies from the same university in 2016. He fell in love with Tasmania’s unique and beautiful nature as soon as he arrived here for his studies in 2012.
Since then, he is determined to help save Tassie’s aquatic environment from alien fish invasion, an issue that is close to his heart and has become his passion. Besides doing research, he also loves communicating science to the public as part of his effort to create awareness on safeguarding the aquatic ecosystem. He is an avid photographer and during his free time, he travels around the state capturing and recording its beauty.
