Giordana Cocco


Degree: B. Sc. (Stream: Marine Science); Completed 1st and 2nd year with 2 distinctions and 1 credit.
Interests: Sailing, scuba diving, research and volunteer work in marine related areas. Giordana believes that these activities continuously stimulate her to learn and study more about the marine environment while developing a strong awareness for this environment and its associated challenges.
Career aspirations: Working in tropical areas of Australia as a vital link between researchers and the tourism industry to protect this special environment. Her strong interest in marine studies already brought her together with postgrads from Sydney University and learning from them about different research techniques and study sites. She also assists in teaching scuba diving and informing divers about the marine biology of their local area.
Reasons for interest in the Tropical Marine Science Program: The courses provide practical work and are an excellent opportunity for 'hands on' experience in marine studies.
