Hosted by EIC Mikael Angelo Francisco, Ask Theory shines the spotlight on Pinoy scientific brilliance, in a fun and entertaining “kwentuhan” format. Each episode of Ask Theory  features a Pinoy scientist from one of the various scientific disciplines. In a very casual conversation, guests explain what they do in simple terms, as well as share their fascinating stories: how they got into science, the challenges they face, what motivates them to pursue their fields, what future scientists from the Philippines can look forward to, and so much more.

Episode 84: Paano Maililigtas Ng Ordinaryong Tao Ang Karagatan?

Diovanie de Jesus is a Campaign and Science Specialist at Oceana Philippines. He worked as a research associate at the Marine Science Institute of the University of the Philippines. His previous research work experience enabled him to conduct studies about coral reef ecosystems, help with the management of the Philippines’ Marine Protected Areas, and assist in the plans for the Coral Triangle Initiative.

We talked about science-based oceans management in the Philippines, his experiences as a marine scientist, his lockdown experiment that went viral on social media, simple ways ordinary citizens can contribute to saving our oceans, and more.
