Oceanography Camp for Girls
Meet the Directors
Teresa Greely, Ph.D. (Program Director)
Welcome to the Oceanography Camp for Girls and the USF College of Marine Science! I look forward to working with everyone. My science background is as an ocean biologist with degrees in Natural Sciences (New College), Marine Sciences (USF), and Science Education (USF). My research has been in the area of marine ecology and physiology to help understand how animals, primarily fish, are adapted to live where they live in the ocean, and to determine their contribution to global carbon cycling. This amazing career in ocean sciences and education have taken me to many places—aboard an icebreaker in the Southern Ocean to study deep water fishes, diving in submersibles for jellies, aboard the R/V Atlantis to film hydrothermal vents with Alvin, and sailing aboard the R/V Joides Resolution to collect sediment cores from the deep ocean floor. I have been blessed to gain a lot of “real world” experience as a scientist. Now I have the joy of teaching and training college students and teachers about the ocean and researching ocean literacy. I also work with other scientists and graduate students who are interested in developing their teaching and communication about the ocean. For fun I listen to music, cycle, paddle, try to dance, hike, water ski, and enjoy being around people, especially my family and friends. I have been with the OCG since 1992.
