Giuliana A. Viglione

2018 AAAS Mass Media Science & Engineering Fellow

California Institute of Technology, Geological and Planetary Sciences (Environmental Science)
Fellowship Sponsor: Fellowship Site: King5 News

I’m a PhD candidate at Caltech using underwater robots to study climate change in Antarctica. I spend most of my time thinking about the intersections of science, policy, and society and how to improve scientific literacy. To that end, I co-founded Caltech Letters, an online publication that amplifies the voices and research of the Caltech community. When not on a ship, I can be found yelling at a soccer game, cuddled up with my cat and a book, or over-using the heart-eyes emoji. Likes include pre-industrial levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide and very cold water; dislikes include coral reef bleaching and gender inequity in STEM.
