What’s it like being a marine biologist? (Is that ok?)

David Shiffman, Ph.D. is an interdisciplinary marine conservation biologist, and his research focuses on the ecology and conservation of chondrichthyan fishes. His research uses cutting-edge interdisciplinary methods to answer policy-relevant questions about threatened species of public concern, while providing many opportunities for collaboration, student research, and public outreach.
