Dr. Morgan Meyers has conducted research on marine plankton responses to climate change stressors in San Francisco estuaries and New Zealand waters. She received a Bachelor of Science in biology and a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish from Iowa State University, and a Master of Science in marine biology from San Francisco State University. Morgan competed her Doctorate in marine zooplankton ecology at the University of Otago in New Zealand, after which she joined the Department of Genetics at the University of Georgia as a Lecturer in August 2021. Here at UGA, Morgan teaches introductory biology for non-majors and is dedicated to helping students apply and appreciate biology in ways that can improve their own lives, the well-being of their communities, and the health of the planet.
