Emily Meese is a Master's student in the CSULB Shark Lab in California, USA. She is interested in the spatial and behavioral ecology of sharks and fish - which is why we are interested in her! She took some time to answer questions for The Fins United Initiative "Behind the Fins" interview.
This "Behind the Fins" interview is done by TFUI Officer Jessie Wingar.
Dr. David Shiffman is the man behind the popular twitter account, @whysharksmatter, but I first met David Shiffman during the summer of 2009 when I was a rising Junior at the University of Miami. At the time, David was working on his PhD. Since completing his PhD in 2016 at the University of Miami, he has become a Liber Ero Posdoctoral Fellow at Simon Fraser University in Canada. For our Behind the Fins segment, I (Jessie Wingar) interviewed him.
As with many marine scientists, the love for ocean started at a young age. Growing up David says that, “I’ve been interested in sharks as long as my family can remember…I’ve wanted to be a marine biologist since at least 7th grade.” One of the first stories I remember David telling was about a crazy field experience he had.
TFUI Founder Melissa C. Marquez is author of all animal bios and "Behind the Fins" segments.
