APRIL 18
My Journey as a Woman in Science: A Career Filled with Opportunities and Challenges

Dr. Kevan Main has worked in the field of aquaculture for over 30 years. Her presentation will address the challenges and opportunities that resulted in her becoming Director of the USDA Regional Aquaculture Center, President of the World Aquaculture Society, and Research Director at Mote Marine Laboratory. Highlights from her scientific career will include experiences as a teacher, researcher, science advisor and coordinator, public speaker, manager, fundraiser, and mentor—all with a focus on expanding sustainable aquaculture around the world. These activities were accomplished along with a focus on her most important job—being a wife and mother of two children.

Dr. Kevan Main is a Senior Scientist and Director of Mote Marine Laboratory’s Aquaculture Research Park, where she is developing biotechnological tools and sustainable farming technologies. In 2016, Dr. Main was recognized as a “White House Champion of Change for Sustainable Seafood,” and was inducted as a Fellow of the World Aquaculture Society.
