In today’s conversation with Camille Mosley, we talk about biological research on fish, the push from white institutes to have diverse perspectives in predominantly white spaces, and therapy in graduate school.

In this episode we discuss: 

  • The lack of diversity in environmental science research
  • Her research as an ecologist
  • The importance of taking care of yourself and asking for help
