|Laura Thompson, PhD|
Laura first came to the aquarium as a RAVS intern during the summer of 2005, working on the identification and quantification of different lymphocytes in wild bottlenose dolphins. She has since also worked as an assistant in the marine mammal and sea turtle stranding program and as a research technician on multiple aspects of the marine origin Brucella project. She holds a first class BSc with honours in Marine and Freshwater Biology from the University of London, and has continued to carry out research at the aquarium while pursuing her PhD in Oceanography at the University of Connecticut. Her research interests focus on marine mammal dive physiology and health, as well as developing methodology to use blow (breath condensate) as a non-invasive means to monitor physiology.
