Ask a Scientist: Chemical Oceanographer

October 21, 2020, 1:30 pm

2:00 pm

How do scientists go from OMG to Ph.D.? Join us to Ask the Scientist, Dr. Bethanie Edwards, Assistant Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences at UC Berkeley. Dr. Edwards studies oxylipin — a chemical “language” spoken by phytoplankton in the ocean and, amazingly, the immune cells in our bodies. By investigating how this language works, Edwards shows how we can gain a deeper understanding of the planet – and ourselves.
