Thank you Yocha Dehe Wintun Nation for sponsoring this Lunch with a Scientist!
Anya Brown is a marine scientist and assistant professor at UC Davis, based at the Bodega Marine Lab in Bodega Bay, CA. She studies marine ecology, and takes particular interest in the microbes that associated with hosts (like corals!). Her work has taken her to French Polynesia, the Cayman Islands, Puerto Rico, St Croix and Massachusetts. Originally from New York, she’s moved around to lots of places around the US to gain experience and go to grad school.
