APECS is an international and interdisciplinary organization for undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, early faculty members, educators and others with interests in Polar Regions and the wider cryosphere. Our aims are to stimulate interdisciplinary and international research collaborations, and develop effective future leaders in polar research, education and outreach. We seek to achieve these aims by:
  • Facilitating international and interdisciplinary networking to share ideas and experiences and to develop new research directions and collaborations;
  • Providing opportunities for professional career development; and
  • Promoting education and outreach as an integral component of polar research and to stimulate future generations of polar researchers.

I finished my undergraduate in Marine Science in China in 2007. Travelled a bit during a gap year, and then come to Hobart for master study on Antarctic Science in 2009, where I officially started my polar research life. After the master degree, it is just too much fun for research on Antarctic krill so I decided to keep going for a PhD in Hobart, in the same institute – Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies. My PhD research focuses on diet of larval Antarctic krill in the winter. It investigates the relationship between krill larvae and sea ice in the southern ocean.
