Meet the Webinar Host & Panelist

Host: Renato Marín

He then spent the first part of his young adult life in northern Spain, where he attended university and graduated in Tourism Management and Marketing. He also started to work in the travel industry, in various roles, like digital marketing or market research in both the public and private sectors. In 2016 new challenges brought him to Chile.

Renato speaks Spanish, English, and German and is passionate about better understanding between people from different cultures.

Special Guest Panelist: Allison Cusick

Allison is from Seattle, WA (USA), and now lives in California pursuing her Ph.D. in Biological Oceanography at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UC San Diego. Her research focuses on understanding microscopic algae that live in the coastal fjords of Antarctica and how melting glaciers influence the polar ecosystem. She is an advocate for outreach and collaboration and co-founded the Citizen Science Project FjordPhyto to be an engaging experience that guests can participate in while Zodiac cruising around Antarctica. With help from many, we can all learn more about this magical place. She first traveled to Antarctica in 2013 on a research ice-breaker in the Ross Sea for 53-days and since 2017 she has spent almost every austral summer on the Antarctic Peninsula as an Expedition Guide. She inspires others to get involved in science through her outreach blog Woman Scientist. She additionally holds a Masters in Marine Biology from Scripps (2021), a second Masters in Marine Biodiversity & Conservation (2017), and a BSc in Biology with a minor in Earth & Space Sciences from the University of Washington (2006). When not doing science, you can find Allison traveling, scuba diving, ultra-running, cycling, or drinking a good cup of coffee. Fun Fact – Allison ran a marathon in Antarctica, dressed as a banana.
