Matt Savoca holds a Ph.D. in Ecology from UC Davis. He is currently an NSF postdoctoral research fellow at the Hopkins Marine Station of Stanford University. His research interests include foraging ecology, sensory ecology, community ecology, and conservation biology. Originally from New York City, Matt enjoys traveling and photography in his spare time. Dr. Robuck is an environmental chemist studying chemical and plastic pollution as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mt. Sinai. She earned a Ph.D. in Chemical Oceanography in 2020 from the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography, during which she studied per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and plastic pollution in water and wildlife. Her dissertation was supported by the highly selective NOAA Dr. Nancy Foster Scholarship, the ORISE Research Fellowship within the US EPA, and a traineeship in the NIEHS Superfund Research Program. Robuck has received recognition for her expansive thinking to marine pollution and PFAS, including the NIEHS KC Donnelly Externship (2020), the Robert and Patricia Switzer Foundation Environmental Leadership Fellowship (2019), and the American Chemical Society Environmental Chemistry Graduate Student Award (2020). Dr. Robuck also holds a BS in Marine Biology and Chemistry, and a MSc in Marine Science and GIS, both from the University of North Carolina Wilmington. Lauren Kashiwabara is a graduate student pursuing my dreams of becoming a marine biologist. My college endeavors have included various marine science research experiences (listed below). My true passion is in changing the world through climate change research and education.
