Collegian Siobhan Heatwole (Class of 2004) might well have the best office in the world.

The marine researcher has just returned to Canberra following a year spent volunteering in Sulawesi. You can read an article about Siobhan’s volunteer work in the Canberra Times.

Siobhan at Nusa PenidaHer proud Mum Miriam says prior to volunteering in Sulawesi, Siobhan worked in Taiwan on a university-funded research project.

“Siobhan’s been invited back to that project so we only get her for two weeks before she heads back to the South China Sea. She has an amazing life. Before Taiwan she was working at the Smithsonian Institute in Panama. The photo of the Pratas Islands is where she was working in the South China Sea – a very different office!”
