Page 14 of 83 | 15 Florida State University Bryan Keller from Tucson, Arizona, is studying biological oceanography, with research focused on the role of magnetic-based navigation in the seasonal migrations of coastal sharks. Many species are known to complete philopatric migrations, but the navigational mechanisms that facilitate this success are unknown. His work might elucidate some of this uncertainty. Brian Moe from Bloomington, Minnesota, studies biological science and his dissertation is focused on filling information gaps regarding the life history and population dynamics of deep-water shark species, many of which are still poorly understood. His past research has focused on ways to better understand a shark's lifetime growth and more accurately estimate mortality rates and rebound potentials. Cheston Peterson from Knoxville, Tennessee, studies biological science and is focused on the study of how medium-sized predators make decisions about how to move and where to go based on the locations of their prey and predators. His research interests are broadly rooted in the ecology of large marine fishes, particularly sharks and rays. His current research involves the natural history and ecology of coastal sharks in the seagrass habitat of the Florida Big Bend. Brian Moe Bryan Keller Cheston Peterson University of South Florida Meaghan Faletti from Ocoee, Florida, is doing her master's degree program investigating the movement of hogfish in the Gulf of Mexico as they age from juveniles to adults. Meaghan comes to USF by way Florida State University where she graduated in 2013. While there, she primarily studied the effects of invasive lionfish and red grouper on community structure in Florida Bay. After graduating from FSU, she worked at the FWC for two years coordinating the state's lionfish outreach program. Elizabeth Herdter from New Milford, Connecticut, is pursuing her Ph.D. focused on evaluating age structure, growth patterns and abundance of juvenile spotted seatrout less than one year old among Florida estuaries. She is also an associate research scientist with the Stock Assessment Group at Florida Fish and Wildlife Research Institute. Her primary interests are marine science, fisheries science, resource assessment, ecology, and environmental policy with a strong educational foundation in quantitative population dynamics and statistical fisheries stock assessment.
