Assistentin RSEC Dahab
Hi, I am Anna, from Austria, and I work for RSEC as a research assistant. I finished my international master in biodiversity and conservation at the University of Ghent, Belgium, and took this opportunity at RSEC to extend my knowledge about tropical coral reefs in beautiful Egypt. After an intensive 3 weeks’ training, where I learned all about local coral reefs and their diseases, local fauna (especially fish and invertebrates) and how to distinguish all these species I can actually start with my job: I will use this gained knowledge to provide assistance when groups of students from different universities will come and assist, guide or partially teach them during their stay. My tasks include for instance guiding the students when they go snorkelling, or, after I finished my divemaster (which I will do here at Sinai Divers at the same time too), assisting and/or guiding them when they go diving. Furthermore, I will take care of “daily business” tasks too, like responding to emails, managing the students’ houses and simply assist whenever help is needed.
