I’ll be making a couple public appearances this winter, so here’s where you can track me down.
Next week I’ll be in lovely Charleston, South Carolina for the spring meeting of the Southern Division of the American Fisheries Society. I’ll be presenting the latest results from the acoustic array project, so be sure to check out my talk for the first round of the Winter of the Shark salvo. There will also be a workshop on acoustic telemetry, for anyone who currently works with or is interested in working with acoustic arrays. Even if sticking pingers on or in fish is not your thing, there will be a slew of shark talks, a multi-day symposium on sturgeon, and plenty of other fish-related diversions. Registration is still open for this conference if you’ve been on the fence about attending.
Next month, I’ll be heading down to Pine Knoll Shores, North Carolina for the SciREN workshop, which links up scientists with teachers to develop lesson plans based on their research. I’ll be working up a lesson plan and some classroom materials on shark migration and demographics based on our shark-tagging research. This is not only a great way to not only help out local teachers, but also an awesome outreach opportunity for those who enjoy communicating science (or need a little extra something for the “broader impacts” section of a grant proposal).
Looking forward to seeing everyone at these two events.
