Edie Widder to speak at the DISL Foundation Luncheon

Dr. Edie Widder
Dr. Edie Widder

Edith Widder is a deep-sea explorer and MacArthur Fellow who combines expertise in oceanographic research and technological innovation with a commitment to reversing the worldwide trend of marine ecosystem degradation. She received her undergraduate degree in Biology from Tufts University and her MS in Biochemistry and PhD in Neurobiology from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Two years after completing her Ph.D., Dr. Widder became certified as a Scientific Research Pilot for Atmospheric Diving Systems.

A specialist in bioluminescence (the light chemically produced by many ocean organisms), she has been a leader in helping to design and invent new submersible instrumentation, and equipment to enable unobtrusive deep-sea observations. Her innovations have produced footage of rare sharks, jellyfish, and crustaceans, as well as led to the discovery of a new species of large squid and made the first ever recordings of the giant squid, Architeuthis, in its natural habitat. In 2005, in order to help protect the ocean she loves, Widder co-founded the Ocean Research & Conservation Association, a not-for-profit dedicated to the study and protection of marine ecosystems and the species they sustain through development of innovative technologies and science-based conservation action.
