In 2005 she carried out fieldwork for her Master thesis on coral reefs outside Hurghada city coast where she looked at damage to hard corals by snorkelers.
Christina studied Biodiversity, Ecology and Evolution at Göttingen University in Germany with a focus on plant ecology and ecosystem research. Besides, she is very interested in marine biology, biodiversity, nature conservation and environmental education. She did several research assistant jobs during and after her degree focusing on plant ecology, plant-pollinator-interactions, and vegetation analysis. She really enjoyed learning different approaches and methods and getting to know other countries and cultures.
But she never forgot about marine biology. she is diving since 2009 and she assisted in projects regarding coral diversity and ecosystem research. she is always keen to learn more about marine life and enjoy teaching people and having the opportunity to show this amazing world underwater.
