About Me

University Professor

I teach undergraduate marine biology and oceanography courses in the Department of Environmental and Ocean Sciences at the University of San Diego.

Shark Scientist | Marine Biologist

I hold a concurrent research appointment at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, where I conduct research on the behavior, ecology, and conservation of sharks and rays.

Science Communicator

I communicate science to diverse audiences through presentations, interviews and social media. I tell compelling stories without dumbing it down, but rather distilling the message.
