Rhian Waller  

Associate Professor at University of Maine; Deep-Sea Ecologist

Dr. Rhian Waller is an associate professor of Marine Sciences at the Darling Marine Center (University of Maine, USA) and specializes in the ecology of deep-sea and cold-water organisms, particularly corals. Rhian has led or participated in over 40 international research and exploration cruises and expeditions to some of the most remote parts of the planet, and has published over 30 scientific papers and book chapters in her 9-year career. She is passionate about educating the next generation of scientists and the conservation of little-known deep-sea and polar ecosystems to be studied and enjoyed in the future.

Her job as a deep sea researcher and diver has taken her from the Arctic to the Antarctic. Waller has gone down to great depths in submersibles, but spends a lot of time scuba diving in depths of up to 150 feet. Waller primarily studies reproductive ecology and deep sea coral by diving into some very cold waters.
