Trials & Tribulations of International Travel during the COVID-19 Pandemic

By Phoenix Rogers Around this time two years ago I first heard about the opportunity presented by LOREX to travel abroad and collaborate on an international research project. I was at the 2019 Society for Freshwater Science annual meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah sharing my research ideas, connecting with colleagues, and learning more about the work being done in our field. Conferences always give me so much inspiration and …

Because the program is aimed at cultivating and developing international collaborations, LOREX was like having a cheat introduction on how to move your research online. Just before the pandemic struck and we were all forced to be remote, …

#BlackinMarineScience Week

By Camille Gaynus The lack of diversity in STEM fields does not exist because of uninterest, but rather exclusionary barriers. The barriers that exclude Black people from science develop early. High drop off rates at each academic benchmark leave few Black scientist in leadership positions. The field of Marine Science only exemplifies the stats. Even though Black people make up about 13% of the US population, only ~1% of doctorates …

Career Corner – Take a break from your research to grow professionally

By Eilea Knotts A coffee corner is a great space for sharing personal stories, food, and drink to help us get to know one another and to build trust. It is a place to pick up bits and pieces of information that may informally provide the foundation to get things done later in our lives. These “corners” provide the perfect space to focus on the ideas and concepts that are …
