Deepling emeritus, Miriam Goldstein, is a science rock star. My science crush on her only deepens after watching her completely explode TeX Oslo. Miriam is all like BAM SCIENCE! In case you don’t know, Miriam is a marine biologist and science communicator currently spending a year as a Sea Grant Fellow in the United States Congress. She was one of the original DSN crew and holds a Ph.D. from the Harvard of Oceanography, Scripps Institution of Oceanography in San Diego California. She is a leading expert on the ecological impacts of plastic debris in the North Pacific Subtropical Gyre.
