When not underwater or in the lab, Kristen writes and speaks about coral restoration, ocean conservation, and the craft of science communication itself.


A selection of sci-comm projects are catalogued here, but let's be honest, some of this is Old News. The Lab is always making new breakthroughs and taking even cooler photos. There's only one way to get the newest intel, the latest coral baby photos, and the good jokes, and that's by going straight to the source.
