On this episode of Knowledge Brews Supreme I’m joined by shark expert Jaida Elcock Jaida is a PhD student in the MIT-WHOI Joint Program. She is also the Director of Public Relations for Minorities in Shark Sciences (MISS). Her research is on shark movement ecology of basking sharks.  In 2022, Jaida was awarded a Nancy Foster Fellowship to support her PhD research. Jaida received her B.S. in Biology with University Honors from Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona. She has previously lived in landlocked states but has still been able to gain experience with marine animals through an internship at OdySea Aquarium in Scottsdale, Arizona. She has also been recognized as an American Elasmobranch Society Young Professional Recruitment Fund Scholar. Jaida is incredibly excited to help other underrepresented students light a fire within themselves to fuel a passion for marine sciences. If you are interested in supporting Minorities in Shark Sciences you can find their website here.
