Zoom w/ Dr. Heather Leslie: April 28 – 6:30 p.m.
The Library will virtually host marine scientist Dr. Heather Leslie on Wednesday, April 28 at 6:30 p.m. The event is the fourth part of a yearlong series celebrating Maine women that will run through 2021. Leslie will give a presentation that focuses on the connections among people and coastal ecosystems, focusing on how marine scientists use a combination of field experiments and modeling to investigate how climate and changes in economic and regulatory policy influence ecosystems and social interactions. An international leader in marine conservation science, Leslie conducts research on the ecology, policy, and management of coastal ecosystems. She is the director of the University of Maine’s marine laboratory, Darling Marine Center, and Professor of Marine Sciences. She studies a wide array of marine and environmental science topics, including aquaculture and marine fisheries. A member of the University of Maine faculty since 2015, Leslie received an A.B. in Biology from Harvard University, a Ph.D. in Zoology from Oregon State University, and conducted postdoctoral research at Princeton University. Before arriving at UMaine, she was on the faculty at Brown University, as the inaugural Peggy and Henry D. Sharpe Assistant Professor. Heather lives by the Damariscotta River in Newcastle, Maine, with her two children and husband, microbial ecologist Jeremy Rich.
The public is invited to attend via Zoom:
