Drew Talley, PhD, was born in San Diego. After graduate school at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, he was a postdoc at UC Davis working on land-sea connections on islands in the Gulf of California. He also served for four years as the first Research Coordinator for the San Francisco Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, and for the last decade have been the Science Director for Ocean Discovery Institute.
