About GrrlScientist

grrlscientist is the pseudonym of an evolutionary biologist and ornithologist who writes about evolution, ethology, and ecology, especially in birds. After earning a degree in microbiology (thesis focus: virology) and working at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, she earned her PhD in zoology from the University of Washington in Seattle, where she studied the molecular correlates of testosterone and behaviour in white-crowned sparrows. She then worked a Chapman Postdoctoral Fellow at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, where she studied the speciation and distribution of lories and other parrots throughout the South Pacific Islands. A discarded scientist, she returned to her roots: writing. Formerly hosted by The Guardian (UK), she now writes about science for Forbes and for the non-profit think tank, the Evolution Institute and she writes podcasts for BirdNote Radio. An avid lifelong birder and aviculturist, she lives with a flock of songbirds and parrots somewhere in Germany.

    Check out the penguins! Snorkeling around the Galapagos islands inspired me to learn scuba. Very cool film.

    Beautiful video… The Galapagos marine life is just amazing and very diverse. It includes 16 species of whales; some of these species are the humpback, sperm, blue, and killer whales.
    Most sea species like hammerhead sharks, sea Lions, tropical penguins, marine iguanas sea turtles and thousands of colorful fish can be seen all year round.
