Matthew, Megan, Kevin, Michael and Dr. Dinsdale, along with members of Dr. Rob Edwards lab, Genivaldo Gueiros and Daniel Cuevas went to Indonesia in April 2014. The aim of the visit was to discuss possible collaborations with Diponegoro University in Semarang (on island of Java) and Hasanuddin University in Makasar (island of Sulawesi). While there, the group had the opportunity to learn about local customs, talk to Indonesian students, present research work and to also see the amazing coral reef systems of this area. Below you can see a few of the great pictures from the time spent in Indonesia.
