Erin Spencer
Science writer, marine ecologist and Ph.D. candidate @Florida International University
Erin is a science writer, marine ecologist and Ph.D. candidate in Biology at Florida International University studying great hammerhead sharks. Her research uses biologgers, or animal-mounted data collecting devices, to record acceleration, speed, depth, and more, which helps us understand shark energy needs and movement patterns. Prior to working in Florida, she received a Masters in Ecology from the University of North Carolina—Chapel Hill where she studied red snapper fishery management and seafood mislabeling, and a Bachelors in Ecology from the College of William and Mary where she studied invasive lionfish management. She is a three-time National Geographic Explorer grantee and has given talks to groups of all ages through National Geographic, the World Bank, and TEDx, as well as many school groups. She is also an avid writer and has a children’s book called The World of Coral Reefs that was published in March 2022.
