Georgina Cox: Reality or Science Fiction?
Georgina Cox has a PhD in Marine Biology and Fisheries. At the University of Miami, she’s researching the cardiovascular function of fish before oil exposure and after oil exposure using cutting edge techniques. Two early influences led Dr. Cox to focus on comparative cardiovascular physiology: a fascination with fish from summers spent on the shores of the North Atlantic and her father’s chronic heart problems.
