Get a glimpse into the ocean’s greatest depths – and the fascinating creatures that live there – with two leading marine biologists. DAVID GRUBER searches the oceans for bioluminescent and biofluorescent marine species and designs delicate and noninvasive tools for studying and interacting with deep-sea life. DIVA AMON participates in expeditions around the world to study the unusual animals living in a variety of deep-sea habitats – and how humans impact them. Through stories and conversation, they’ll shine a light on this dark, cold, and mysterious world.

DIVA AMON is a deep-sea biologist who works at the nexus of science, policy, and communications. She studies the weird and wonderful animals living in a range of previously unknown deep-sea habitats and human impacts on them. She has participated in research expeditions around the world and has an extensive science communication and outreach record. Amon is a 2020 National Geographic Emerging Explorer, a Pew-Bertarelli Ocean Ambassador, a a Co-Lead of the DOSI Minerals Working Group, a Scientific Associate at the Natural History Museum in London, and a Director and Founder of SpeSeas.

DAVID GRUBER is a marine biologist and Professor of Biology and Environmental Science at Baruch College, City University of New York. He is also a 2014 National Geographic Emerging Explorer, a Research Associate in Invertebrate Zoology at the American Museum of Natural History, and President of Project CETI, a 2020 TED Audacious Project. His interdisciplinary research spans marine biology, biofluorescence/bioluminescence, submersible design, and animal communication. David strives to develop technology to connect to – and protect – marine life. He is currently working on a project that applies advanced machine learning and gentle robotics to listen to and translate the communication of sperm whales.
