Todd Bond has been immersed in the ocean from a very young age while growing up in Perth, Western Australia. He pursued his passion for natural sciences and the marine environment at The University of Western Australia where he received an honours degree in Marine Science. Following graduation, he took several appointments with UWA as a research assistant, travelling the world and sharing his expertise using baited remote underwater stereo-video systems to study fish and sharks. Todd is currently completing a PhD at UWA and is utilising his knowledge of underwater video sampling techniques to understand how fish and fisheries interact with oil and gas infrastructure. His work with workclass ROVs used by the oil and gas industry, passion for fish ecology, and extensive field experience has led to his position in the team.
