ArunDayanandanArun Dayanandan is a biology graduate student at Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The son of two biologists, his passion for science began in the womb. After an inspiring conservation-focused trip to the Galapagos Islands, followed by a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study biology in Australia, he continues to study the biological world in all its forms. When he’s not actively researching or communicating science, Arun can be found writing music and training for his first powerlifting competition.
