EARTH 2019 – Presenters

Erika Woolsey

CEO & Co-Founder, The Hydrous
Ocean Design Fellow, Stanford University
National Geographic Explorer

Erika is a marine biologist who has been studying and exploring coral reefs around the world for over 15 years, with a particular focus on how rising ocean temperatures affect coral populations. Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, she conducted her PhD research with the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies at James Cook University in Townsville, Australia and earned her Masters of Applied Science in Coastal Management from the University of Sydney. She received a B.A. from Duke University, where she studied biology and art history. A National Geographic Explorer, Erika is dedicated to public engagement of science and believes the ocean is too good not to share. She is currently a Teaching Fellow at the Stanford and the Stanford Center for Ocean Solutions.

Géraldine Fauville

Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Virtual Human Interaction Lab, Stanford University

Géraldine has one Masters in Marine Biology, another in Education and Information Technology, and a PhD in Education. Her research focuses on how digital technologies can improve marine science education and promote ocean literacy.

Digital technologies can support learning about the ocean by taking learners into the depths of the ocean to help them visualize complex phenomena that are too big, too small, or too far away in time or space to observe or easily understand.

She is currently a Knut och Alice Wallenberg Stiftelse Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Virtual Human Interaction Lab at Stanford University investigating the impact of virtual reality on environmental and marine education.
