BML - Jesús Pineda: "Larval transport and dispersal in the nearshore: processes and breakthroughs for understanding population response to a changing ocean"
From Noah Killeen
About the Speaker:
As a boy, Jesús Pineda traveled each summer from his home in Mexico City to his grandmother’s ranch in central Mexico, where he fished for catfish from a local river. That interest spurred a biology and oceanography career, and he quickly found barnacles, sea anemones, clams, and other creatures without backbones more intriguing than fish. After earning degrees in biological oceanography and marine ecology at Escuela Superior de Ciencias Marinas (UABC) and at Centro de Investigatión Científica y de Educación Superior de Ensenada (CICESE) in Mexico, he completed doctoral studies in oceanography at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. He joined WHOI as a Postdoctoral Scholar before becoming a Senior Scientist.
