Drew Harvell is Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Cornell University and curator of the Blaschka Glass Invertebrates at Cornell. She received her PhD from University of Washington in 1985. Her research on host-pathogen interactions and the sustainability of marine ecosystems has taken her from the reefs of Mexico, Indonesia, Myanmar and Hawaii to the Pacific Northwest. She leads an NSF Research Coordination Network on Ocean Health. She is a Fellow of the Ecological Society of America and the Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future, a winner of the Society of American Naturalists Jasper Loftus-Hills Award, and a lead author of the oceans chapter in the U.S. Climate Change Assessment. Harvell’s most recent work focuses on environmental drivers of sea star wasting disease and eel grass diseases. Her writing appears in The New York Times, The Hill and in over 140 academic articles in journals such as Science, Nature, and Ecology. A Sea of Glass is her new book (2016), focused on the quest to find the matches to the 700 Blaschka models made in the 1860’s. Visit her research website or the Fragile Legacy Blaschka Website.
