Dr. Robinson earned her bachelor’s degree from Centenary College of Louisiana, master’s degree from Texas A&M University – Corpus Christi, and Ph.D. in Oceanography and Coastal Sciences from Louisiana State University. Her Ph.D. research examined the impact of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill on mollusk and crustacean populations, behavior, and predator-prey interactions. After completion of her Ph.D., she completed a NAS Science Policy Fellowship and then returned to LSU as a Postdoctoral Researcher. As a Postdoc, she researched the transmission of a virus (CsRV1) in soft shell blue crab aquaculture. Dr. Robinson is excited to continue her work in aquaculture production and research at the oyster lab and hatchery.
