Senior Scientist
Biology Department
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution

Lauren Mullineaux is a biological oceanographer at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and faculty member of the MIT/WHOI Joint Program in Oceanography. She grew up in Colorado and started out studying desert plant communities, but got hooked on oceanography after sailing on a research cruise in college. Currently, she studies the larval stages of marine invertebrates in order to understand how species disperse and colonize remote habitats. Much of her recent fieldwork has focused on the ecology of deep-sea communities, particularly on seamounts and at hydrothermal vents.
