Laurence Madin will provide an up-close view of common but rarely seen animals, based on his exploration via SCUBA diving, submersibles, and remote vehicles. These animals include macrozooplankton and micronekton, with a focus on gelatinous animals.
Madin is the executive vice president, director of research, and a senior scientist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. Previously he served as chair of the WHOI biology department and director of the WHOI Ocean Life Institute. He was among the first biologists to use SCUBA diving and submarines to study these organisms in their natural habitats.
