Spineless: The Science of Jellyfish and the Art of Growing a Backbone

Wednesday, April 17 | 1pm | Hill Theatre

Driven by questions about how overfishing, coastal development, and climate change were contributing to a jelly fish population explosion, Dr. Juli Berwald embarked on a scientific odyssey, traveling the globe to meet the biologist who devote their careers to jellies. Spineless is the story of how Juli learned to navigate and ultimately embrace her ambition, her curiosity, and her passion for the natural world.

Juli Berwald received her PhD in Ocean Science from the University of Southern California. More about her work and writing can be found at www.juliberwald.com
