Jaida Elcock - Science, SciComm, and Sharks!
Click to hide meeting description

Join our speaker, Jaida Elcock, who will be discussing her winding path through marine science and how she became a student at MIT and WHOI. She will explain the many hats she wears in the different areas of the science and science communication world, including her work with Minorities in Shark Sciences, her personal science communication, and a bit about her research. She will also talk about what gets her so excited about science and would love to hear about what makes other so excited about science too!

Jaida Elcock is a PhD student in the MIT-WHOI Joint Program. Her research is on shark movement ecology. She is particularly interested in the movement ecology of migratory elasmobranchs, as this information is still unknown for many species. Jaida received her B.S. in Biology with University Honors from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona. She has previously lived in landlocked states but has still been able to gain experience with marine animals through an internship at OdySea Aquarium in Scottsdale, Arizona. Though not a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellow, Jaida was recognized as an Honorable Mention for her research proposal. She has also been recognized as an American Elasmobranch Society Young Professional Recruitment Fund Scholar. As a co-founder of Minorities in Shark Sciences, Jaida is incredibly excited to help other underrepresented students light a fire within themselves to fuel a passion for marine sciences.

Officer meeting

First Wednesday of every month
Location: Varies

Every month there is also a meeting where the officers discuss club issues. It is held at a different place each month, usually at a member's house, restaurant or other informal setting.

It is open to the membership, and is the perfect opportunity to bring up issues directly to the board. if you would like to attend, ask an officer and they'll let you know the location for that month.
