Science Talk: Jamie Knaub
Our guest speaker for this presentation is Jamie Knaub, a Ph.D. student in the Integrative Biology Program at Florida Atlantic University. Her talk will include a variety of topics including her undergraduate research which focused on marine mammal stranding and involvement with the skeletal articulation of two orcas, including the 26 foot orca skeleton at the Noyo Center for Marine Science. Jamie's early engagement in marine mammal necropsies and skeletal preparation inspired her to pursue a doctoral degree investigating cetacean backbones. Jamie will discuss her Ph.D. dissertation research, which focuses on micro-CT scanning of vertebrae of marine megafauna (specifically, sharks and cetaceans) to investigate variation in mineral structure within individuals and across species.
