Artie is excellent with children and has an amazing way of connecting with them to teach them. I've seen this first hand with my kids. He is super passionate about biology and has been studying it for many years.

Jamey

Artie is, above all, a caring, empathetic, and understanding person. These skills meld perfectly with his creativity and ability to appropriately use out-of-the-box teaching styles, which makes him an excellent tutor!

Artie's Experience

I have extensive research experience in molecular biology, immunology, physiology, and general biology.

I have lectured undergraduate and graduate level biology courses. I have also helped to teach for grades k-12.

If you are struggling with understanding general biology, biochemistry, hematology, cell biology, immunology, and most areas of science, I can help.

Artie's resume

ARTIE WONG, PHD

SUMMARY
I have over 15 years of experience as a marine biologist, with a specialty in marine mammal conservation. I have worked with government agencies, universities, animal care facilities, and non-profit organizations throughout the world, in order to address the declining health of the environment and wildlife. I utilize creativity and teamwork to discover and implement novel solutions to complex problems. I promote a positive and collaborative work environment. I’m interested in a career, which will help to address the unprecedented environmental and socio-economic issues we face in the world today.

EDUCATION

Brisbane, Australia
PhD
Jan 2012 - Aug 2016
A catastrophic flood event along the Queensland coast in 2011 raised concerns for the health of a declining dugong population, whose marine ecosystem was exposed to coastal runoff from an urban coastline. My research included establishing serum biochemistry and haematology reference intervals, and developing an immunoglobulin G (IgG) antibody. Utilizing these tools I discovered that a small percentage of the living population had serum antibody levels indicative of exposure to the parasites Toxoplasma gondii and Neospora caninum, which are respectively known to spread from the feces of cats and dogs. Exposure to N. caninum is the first reported for the species and the order of Sirenia. This information is being utilized to protect the dugong’s marine ecosystem and improve conservation of the species.

MSc
May 2003 - May 2008
While working for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC), I identified an inconsistent triage protocol for the rescue of endangered West Indian manatees, which are often injured or killed by boat collisions, cold-stress, and harmful algal blooms. I led the development of a manatee vital sign monitoring protocol in collaboration with the FWC, Sea to Shore Alliance, the US Geological Survey USGS, and Disney’s Animal Programs.
