BAR HARBOR, ME—On Tuesday, November 12, shark ecologist Sora Lee Kim will talk to College of the Atlantic’s Human Ecology Forum about her research, Beyond the Slashing Jaws of Shark Week: Past and Present Ecology.

Kim is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Wyoming. She has a PhD in Earth Science from the University of California, Santa Cruz and a B.A. in Environmental Studies and Earth Science from Dartmouth College. Kim has worked extensively on shark ecology and evolution through the development and application of stable isotope techniques. As a graduate student and postdoctoral researcher she has invested time into curriculum development in the Earth and Environmental Sciences, workshops on teaching excellence, and programs for women in science.

On November 9, Kim will join COA faculty member Sarah Hall’s Natural Resources field trip through coastal Maine as a second geologist.
