About the Author

My name is Emma Stein and I hold a Bachelor’s degree in Ecology and Evolution from UC Santa Cruz. I’m particularly interested in marine ecology.

While at UC Santa Cruz, I assisted the Raimondi-Carr lab, which was (and continues to be) a remarkable experience. It was quite literally a dream come true! I’m currently managing the research project I started as an undergraduate at UCSC.

I am currently working towards my Master’s degree at Bangor University in Wales, which is quite exciting as I get to learn about all sorts of organisms I haven’t encountered before!

I also teach gifted children online through Athena’s Advanced Academy. The courses I’ve created so far include: Marine Biology, In-Depth Marine Biology, Marine Biological & Ecological Independent Study, Marine Mammals, Tropical Coral Reef Ecosystems, Marine Biology through History, Marine Ecology, The Rocky Intertidal Ecosystem, Marine Bioacoustics, Marine Ichthyology, All About Algae, and Underwater Forests: Kelp Ecosystems.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading scientific articles, writing, gardening, using dichotomous keys, and exploring marine ecosystems!

I’m looking forward to creating more classes, learning as much as I can, and eventually earning my PhD.
