Emerging Scientist: Laura Khor

Laura Khor, a WorldFish Research Fellow, earned her Master of Science in Aquaculture from Universiti Malaysia Sabah and is currently working on novel approaches to monitoring and mitigating disease outbreaks in aquaculture. She is developing a suite of virtual courses and online tools to increase the accessibility of information to aquatic food farmers in low- and middle- income countries, eager to prevent losses and sustain their livelihoods. She hopes to bridge the gap between researchers and rural farmers by developing integrative platforms that facilitate the exchange of information.
