Join Taylor to explore her current research on the impacts of plastic pollution on coastal ecosystem health, tying human behavior and our waste management infrastructure on land, to what we see in the ocean. Her background is in marine ecology, conservation, and science communication, working on projects around the globe with organizations such as National Geographic, NOAA, and Rare. Before starting her PhD, she served as the Director of the Plastics Initiative at National Geographic and organized their largest female-led expedition on the Ganges River to study plastic pollution.
