WE MEET AT RIVER CITY BREWING COMPANY
Lunch at 12:00pm - Meeting at 12:30pm
Meet Dr. Quincy Gibson
Assistant Professor, UNF
Dr. Quincy Gibson received her Bachelors of Science degrees in both biology and psychology from the University of Maryland and her Doctorate in biology from Georgetown University. Her dissertation research was focused on the social development of wild bottlenose dolphin calves in Shark Bay, Australia. After graduating, Quincy moved to Maui to take on the position of Research Director for Pacific Whale Foundation. In this role, she led research programs on humpback whales in Hawaii, Australia and Ecuador for over two years. She then had the opportunity to spend a summer in Belize teaching a college study abroad course on dolphins, which inspired her to return to academia. In December 2010, Quincy joined UNF’s Coastal Biology Flagship Program as a visiting research scientist and established the university’s dolphin research program. She was then offered a tenure-track Assistant Professor position and officially joined UNF’s biology faculty in December 2012.
