Dr. Danielle Ingle
Postdoctoral Research Associate @Texas A&M University at Galveston
Dr. Danielle Ingle is a marine biologist, functional morphologist, and biomechanist. She earned a B.S. from the University of Northern Colorado and graduated with both her M.S. and Ph.D. from Florida Atlantic University (FAU). Her research interests focus on investigating connections between the structure and mechanical behavior of hard tissues that comprise the feeding apparatuses and skeletons of marine megafauna such as dolphins, manatees, and sea turtles. She has a particular passion for bones; during graduate school, she and a team of volunteers articulated the skeleton of an adult bottlenose dolphin, which is on display in FAU’s science atrium. Currently, she works as a Postdoctoral Research Associate with the EcoMorphLab and the Gulf Center for Sea Turtle Research at Texas A&M University at Galveston. In her free time you can find her at the beach or mountain climbing in her home state of Colorado.
