Anna Robuck | Live Seabird Dissection

Join Anna for a live dissection of a seabird to see if we can find plastic in its stomach. Anna is finishing a PhD at the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography. Her research combines chemistry and biology to explore chemical and plastic pollution in ocean food webs. She specializes in understanding “new” pollution threats, called emerging contaminants, and how these emerging contaminants (like plastics) show up in seabirds called Great Shearwaters – to date she has dissected almost 400 Great Shearwaters, and found plastic in almost every one!

Anna is a NOAA Nancy Foster Scholar, an ORISE Research Fellow placed within the US EPA, and a trainee in the NIEHS Superfund Research Program. Robuck has received recognition for her expansive thinking to marine pollution, including the NIEHS KC Donnelly Externship (2020), the Robert and Patricia Switzer Foundation Environmental Leadership Fellowship (2019), and the American Chemical Society Environmental Chemistry Graduate Student Award (2020). She is also the managing editor of oceanbites.org, and seeks to spread awareness about chemical and plastic pollution through education and student mentorship.
