Seems like my life in Hawaii was a long time ago. My name is Yuuki Justin Niimi and I am currently doing my Masters in Ocean Science at University of Southampton, United Kingdom. Living in UK is a whole new world for me: from the typical English accent to the lovely tea drinking culture, I personally think I made a great choice trying to study away from home. Currently, I am starting to write my proposal for my deep-sea taxonomy project. Overall, I am really lucky to study in Southampton since it has the National Oceanography Center. Many well-known oceanography scientists from UK come here to do research, which makes it a great place to meet scientists from similar fields. I am thankful for my experience and support UH gave me for me to be the person who I am.
