SciX 2018 Conference Topic Areas
SciX traditionally focuses on the following topical areas. However, presentations in every area of analytical chemistry are accepted and encouraged.
NOAA's Southwest Fisheries Science Center
and Hopkins Marine Station, Stanford University
Keynote Presentation: On Polymer Seas: The Rising Tide of Plastic in the Ocean and What to do About It
Dr. Matthew Savoca uses a sensory biology approach to help explain why marine animals confuse plastic debris for prey items. His research has been featured on NPR, National Geographic, the BBC, and The New York Times, among other outlets. He is also passionate about communicating science; his popular science articles on plastic pollution have been published by Scientific American and the Washington Post. He has given numerous outreach talks at parks, aquariums, museums, and schools, and in early 2017, Matthew gave a TEDx-talk on marine plastic pollution. He has been on the radio in six countries discussing his research, and marine conservation more broadly. Currently, Matthew is a postdoctoral researcher working jointly at NOAA's Southwest Fisheries Science Center and the Hopkins Marine Station of Stanford University.
SciX will also continue with its successful Friday morning plenary session!
