A scientist and storyteller, Marah works at the crossroads of research, communication, and strategy to build a sustainable future for people and the sea. As founder of OceanInk, Marah worked for five years with interdisciplinary teams investigating coral reef health, fishery impacts, ocean acidification, and sustainability of seafood supply chains. She is currently Research Director at Future of Fish, working with entrepreneurs and innovators to solve the thorniest of ocean challenges.
Formerly, Marah was a research fellow at Blue Ocean Institute, where she created their climate change program. Marah began her ocean work studying sharks at the Bimini Biological Field Station, aka “The Shark Lab” and these awesome (and surprisingly sexy) predators remain a favorite. Throughout all her roles, Marah has sought to “turn science into stories that make a difference.” She has published in scientific and popular outlets. Hot off the press is her first book, Sex in the Sex (St. Martin’s Press, 2016). She received her PhD in marine science from Scripps Institution of Oceanography and her undergraduate degree in History of Science from Harvard University.
