Oceanographic Center Professor Wins Award for Best Professional Talk at International Conference

Mahmood Shivji, Ph.D., giving his award winning presentation at the Sharks International conference in Cairns, Australia.

Mahmood Shivji, Ph.D., director of the NSU Oceanographic Center’s Guy Harvey Research Institute and Save Our Seas Shark Center, attended the Sharks International conference in Cairns, Australia in early June.

In a unique twist to evaluating presentations, the graduate students at the conference served as judges for choosing the best presentation by a professional (non-student) researcher. Shivji was the recipient of the Student Choice Award for his talk on meta-analysis of global population structure in shark species. “I am truly honored by the award – it’s especially meaningful to me given that it came from the next generation of scientists,” Shivji said.
