Craig McClain is the Executive Director of the Lousiana University Marine Consortium. He has conducted deep-sea research for 20 years and published over 50 papers in the area. He has participated in and led dozens of oceanographic expeditions taken him to the Antarctic and the most remote regions of the Pacific and Atlantic. Craig’s research focuses on how energy drives the biology of marine invertebrates from individuals to ecosystems, specifically, seeking to uncover how organisms are adapted to different levels of carbon availability, i.e. food, and how this determines the kinds and number of species in different parts of the oceans. Additionally, Craig is obsessed with the size of things. Sometimes this translated into actually scientific research. Craig’s research has been featured on National Public Radio, Discovery Channel, Fox News, National Geographic and ABC News. In addition to his scientific research, Craig also advocates the need for scientists to connect with the public and is the founder and chief editor of the acclaimed Deep-Sea News (http://deepseanews.com/), a popular ocean-themed blog that has won numerous awards. His writing has been featured in Cosmos, Science Illustrated, American Scientist, Wired, Mental Floss, and the Open Lab: The Best Science Writing on the Web.

  1. One of the people who manned our booth down there said it was huge…and fun. I wish I could have been there.

  2. Guess that’s 3 in favor and 2 against with a couple sympathy votes. Good enough, Craig, the strikes over.

  3. Oh ok, I guess I’ll cut my vacation short to start blogging again.

    lol had you didn’t I? I just went to the Smithsonian for the first time in my life. Just one word – AWESOME! Although we only got to see the first floor (kids…). I was so stoked for the butterfly exhibit, but never got a chance to go see it. Can’t wait to go childless one day. Although I’ve never seen my 2.25 year old so excited before. Yesterday was the zoo, today the museums. His animal vocabulary has tripled. His favorite was the tigers, mine the giganormous freakin lobster in the invertebrates exhibit at the zoo. Doing the Monuments tomorrow then heading home.
