Speaker Profile:

Dr. Deborah Bronk joined Bigelow Laboratory in February 2018 as its President and CEO. She earned a Ph.D. in marine-estuarine and environmental sciences from the University of Maryland, and she has more than two decades of experience as a professor and an oceanographer. During that time, she has conducted more than 50 research cruises and field studies in freshwater and marine environments that stretch from pole to pole.

Most recently, Deborah was the Moses D. Nunnally Distinguished Professor of Marine Science and department chair at Virginia Institute of Marine Science. She previously served as division director for the National Science Foundation’s Division of Ocean Science and as president of the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography. At the National Science Foundation, she oversaw a $356 million dollar budget. While that is a lot of money by almost any standard, she came to realize it isn’t nearly enough for all the ocean science that needs to be done.

In December 2020, she was elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), and recognized for her substantial research advances on the marine nitrogen cycle and for leadership in the ocean science research community.
