DR. LAURAN BREWSTER

Postdoctoral Fellow

Dr. Lauran Brewster is a Postdoctoral Fellow at Florida Atlantic University's Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute. Lauran obtained her PhD through the University of Hull (U.K.) and the Bimini Biological Field Station, where her dissertation focused on using accelerometers to derive field metabolic rates and activity budgets of juvenile lemon sharks. Prior to joining us here at The Fisheries Ecology and Conservation Lab, Lauran was an Endeavour Research Fellow at Murdoch University, Western Australia. Her primary academic interests involve the application of bio-logging tools and machine learning techniques to better understand the behavioral and physiological ecology of predatory fish. Dr. Brewster is primarily working on the  Grouper Guard  project, where she is applying her skills garnered from her PhD work on lemon sharks towards Goliath Grouper.
