Ocean ecologist Dr. Jonatha Giddens is a Fellow at the National Geographic Society Exploration Technology Lab where she is leading global research to better understand ocean ecosystems while inspiring people to care about the sea through the science, art, and storytelling of deep-ocean exploration.

Dr. Giddens’ vision is to inspire a renewed narrative for the ocean as a vital thing of beauty of which we are a part.

With a background in natural and social sciences, and as an artist at heart, Dr. Giddens is pushing disciplinary boundaries at the cross-section between science, technology, art, and storytelling, to imagine and help create a brighter future for our ocean.
