Deborah Bronk | President, The Oceanography Society @ The Oceanography Society
Deborah Bronk is the President and CEO of the Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences. She holds a BS in marine science and biology from the University of Miami (1986), a PhD in Marine Estuarine and Environmental Science from the University of Maryland (1992), and was a post-doctoral scholar at the University of California, Santa Cruz (1993). In 1994, she joined the faculty of the Department of Marine Science at the University of Georgia where she became a tenured associate professor in 1998. She moved to the Virginia Institute of Marine Science in 2000 where she later served as the chair of the Department of Physical Science. From 2012-2015, she served at the National Science Foundation (NSF) ultimately as director of the Division of Ocean Sciences, where she oversaw a budget of $356M and was responsible for programs in Biological, Chemical, and Physical Oceanography, and Marine Geology and Geophysics, and ocean research facilities including the Ocean Observing Initiative, ocean drilling, and NSF use of the US research fleet.
Genevieve Howell | Director, Products & Global Services @ Sea-Bird Scientific
Genevieve is a strategic and innovative leader in the oceanography industry, serving as Sea-Bird Scientific’s Director, Products & Global Services, for the last three years. She has been with Sea-Bird Scientific for over 20 years, having had various roles within the Metrology, Operations, Service, and Product Management Teams, starting with a role as a Calibration Technician right out of graduate school. Though she has held various roles, one her most outstanding scientific achievements is her forging of a path in best practices for conductivity measurements, which was presented at the AGU Ocean Sciences Conference in 2010.
Jochen Klinke | Director, Science @ Sea-Bird Scientific
Jochen Klinke is the Director of Science at Sea-Bird Scientific. He received his M.S. and Ph.D. in Physics from Heidelberg University (Germany). His post-graduate research focused on imaging techniques for studying air-sea interactions in the laboratory (NASA’s Wallops Island Air-Sea Interaction Facility) and in the ocean (Scripps Institution of Oceanography). In 2005, he transitioned from academia to Teledyne Ocean Science to lead the commercialization of shipboard underway instrumentation, before joining Product Management at Sea-Bird Scientific in 2016.
