About the Author

Welcome to Fathoming the Ocean! My name is Doreen, and I am a doctoral candidate in marine science in the Marine Ecology and Conservation Lab (affectionately known as, “the EggLab”). As a deep-sea biological oceanographer I combine behavior and biology of larvae with the physical characteristics of the ocean to understand what drives connectivity of invertebrate populations. The ocean is my passion, and I want to bring the history and stories of organisms and systems to the world in an engaging manner.
