Emily Griffin

Manatee Contaminants

Emily is a PhD student in the Aquatic Animal Health Program with a concentration in Toxicology. She received her B.S. in Natural Resources Biology from Central Michigan University in 2015 then went on to receive her M.S. in Marine Sciences from Savannah State University. Her previous research focused on photo-identification and genetics of common bottlenose dolphins in the estuarine system surrounding Savannah, Georgia. Her current PhD research utilizes high-resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS) to examine contaminants, such as per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), in Florida manatees. Additionally, she aims to expand the current lipid and metabolite databases to include many marine mammal-derived compounds. She hopes to use her research to enhance understanding of xenobiotic exposure in marine mammals. Emily’s PhD is funded by the Aquatic Animal Health Program, College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Florida.
