Happy Summer! I am delighted to introduce the ATA63 Distinguished Speaker for the Science & Technology Division, Dr. Lauren Esposito. Dr. Esposito is an evolutionary biologist and one of only a few female scorpion experts in the world. Her current research involves the evolution of scorpions and other arachnids, and the processes that have led to the present-day diversity of life on Earth. She is the Curator of Arachnology at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco.
Dr. Esposito will be presenting on Saturday morning, October 15, and her presentation is titled: Saving Humankind, One Scorpion at a Time. For more information and some videos of Dr. Esposito’s work, please visit the California Academy of Sciences website.
