Our Graduates in Marine Biology

Graduates in Marine Biology from New College are re-shaping the field and are at work in diverse areas around the country and indeed throughout the world. Here is a quick look at the career of one of our graduates:

Dr. Erin Lipp, ’94, Associate Professor, University of Georgia Department of Environmental Health Science

“I have always conducted collaborative research. To address real-world problems, it is nearly impossible to do so without a broad expertise.” Dr. Erin Lipp brings her expertise in Marine Biology to UGA’s College of Public Health in the Department of Environmental Health Science. She collaborates with researchers across disciplines in order to tackle pressing environmental and public health issues. Lipp pursued her Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the Center of Marine Biotechnology, University of Maryland, her Ph.D. in Marine Science with an emphasis in Biological Oceanography at University of South Florida and her B.A. in Biology with an emphasis in Marine Biology at New College.
