Stephanie George

Stephanie George works as the lead field technician for the guppy mark-recapture project in Trinidad.  She graduated from Coastal Carolina University in 2008 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a passion Stephanie George for the conservation and ecology of marine and freshwater fishes. During college, she studied shark biology with Dr. Samuel Gruber and Dr. Dan Abel.  Her workincluded learning field techniques used in the SharkLab ongoing research.  Since then, Stephanie assisted in other field studies with Columbian ground squirrels before learning about the guppy project.  Her fascination with the interdisciplinary nature of the FIBR project led Stephanie to Trinidad as an intern, but the sheer beauty of the tropical ecosystem convinced her to stay.  Stephanie now manages the data collected and executes the monthly guppy mark-recapture censuses.  The guppy project has allowed Stephanie to concentrate on her main interests in fish habitat ecology and life history while gaining an immense amount of field experience. She works on a team with Connor Fitzpatrick and a number of wonderful hard working interns.
