Algae found in the Panama Canal

Today is the day of women and girls in science, coincidentally we have with us this morning in the last hour Jennifer Gil. Jennifer is an environmental scientist working with the microalgae of South Florida at Florida International University. She has interned at the Smithsonian twice. She was also an AAAS Mass Media Science & Engineering Fellow 2015 who worked at CNN español. As a Fulbright-National Geographic Digital Storytelling Fellow, she will travel to three Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute facilities in Panama, collecting microalgae samples. She will be documenting it both in Spanish and English through blogging, microscopic pictures, and videos. She will display an exhibit where visitors will use their five senses to discover the invisible world of microalgae. Gil studied Interdisciplinary Science at the University of Puerto Rico. She recently completed her Master’s in Environmental Science at Florida International University.
