On May 26 at 3:00 pm ET (12:00 pm PT) COSEE-OS, working in collaboration with its partner the Institute for Broadening Participation (IBP), and COSEE-Ocean Learning Communities will host the second in a series of four webinars titled Many Learning Pathways in the Ocean Sciences. This webinar will focus on scientists who have engaged in mentoring in their research Initiatives over the course of their career.

Prof. Brian Bingham (Western Washington University, in Bellingham, WA) studies the ecology of marine invertebrates with an emphasis on processes that connect different life history stages. His lab is currently investigating the effects of stress (e.g., UV light, low food availability, partial predation) on reproduction, larval behavior and early juvenile survival of echinoderms and ascidians. Brian will also share his experiences being a career-long mentor to under-represented minority (URM) students in his research Initiatives.

Prof. Ashanti Johnson (Chemical Oceanography at the University of South Florida (USF) and the Executive Director of IBP) will follow Brian’s presentation with a discussion of successful mentoring strategies that could be enacted by scientists -at any stage of their careers- in the Ocean Sciences.  In addition to conducting geochemical research, Ashanti also engages in scholarly activities designed to facilitate research and professional development experiences for under-represented minority students (e.g., Director of the Minorities Striving and Pursuing Higher Degrees of Success in Earth System Science Initiative).
