Camrin Braun’s research at the interface of top predator ecology and oceanography seeks to unite physical-biological interactions with the challenges of managing living marine resources in a dynamic ocean. He uses computational, lab, and field-based studies to address the scales of organization in the marine realm (from animal physiology to basin-scale ecology) that drive the pelagic ecosystems we depend on. While his work is rooted in fundamental oceanographic theory, Braun is particularly passionate about questions that apply basic scientific inquiry to emerging ocean challenges. For example, his work in predator-environment relationships has demonstrated the significance of the ocean twilight zone for top predators, a deep region of the marine realm that remains largely unexplored. Braun is a National Geographic Explorer and member of the Explorer’s Club.
