Biosketch: Dr. Géraldine Fauville

Géraldine Fauville is a researcher at the Department of Education, Communication and Learning. The focus of her research originates from her background as marine biologist and her deep interest in the impact of increased carbon dioxide (CO2) atmospheric concentration on marine environments. Her research, rooted in sociocultural traditions, aims to provide knowledge about how digital technologies support the development of ocean literacy with an emphasis on communicating about the ocean.

Géraldine has also been managing marine education projects in collaboration with Stanford University for the past ten years developing several types of digital learning resources for high school students focusing on marine education (Inquiry-to-Insight and Virtual Marine Scientist).

Géraldine is also a co-founder of the European Marine Science Educators Association aiming to empower formal and informal educators to teach about the marine environment but also to create a network of marine educator stakeholders willing to establish a more ocean literate future for our society. She also serves on the Board of Directors of the U.S. National Marine Educators Association (NMEA).
