Emily GrasonEmily Grason, Ph.D. is a Marine Ecologist with Washington Sea Grant at the University of Washington.

For "work", she plays in the mud with 200 adventurous volunteers, tribal and agency staff partners, to help protect the Salish Sea from invasive European green crab.

As a specialist in marine bioinvasions, Emily is interested in learning what happens to an ecological community when a new species shows up, and how to avoid invasions entirely.
