Sarah Cooley, Director of Ocean Acidification Program at Ocean Conservancy
Dr. Cooley’s scholarly focus spans ocean carbon cycling, science communication, and science-based policy development. Her work at Ocean Conservancy uses science synthesis, strategic communications, political strategy and advocacy, and public advocacy.
Lisa Clough, Ocean Section Head at US National Science Foundation
Lisa Clough has been the Ocean Section Head at the US National Science Foundation for five years. Prior to that she was an NSF Program Director for four years, and a University Professor and Administrator at East Carolina University for 20 years. She is also a wife, mother, and avid baseball fan.
Jaqui Tweedle, Research Fellow at University of Aberdeen
I am an oceanographer by training, and have also worked in policy as a marine spatial planner. I currently work for the University of Aberdeen in the UK, but am funded by the UK’s Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) to work closely with marine planning and policy organisations and government departments. I help facilitate these organisations’ access to and uptake of marine research, and educate marine researchers on the needs of those involved in marine policy and governance. I do this both at a national and international level.
