Max Kaplan, PhD


I am a marine scientist interested in public policy. I hold a PhD in biological oceanography from the MIT/Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Joint Program

I am currently based in Ottawa, ON and work at Fisheries and Oceans Canada as a policy advisor. Previously, I completed a John A Knauss Marine Policy Fellowship in Silver Spring, MD in NOAA's Ocean Acidification Program (2017-2018), where I worked on building global scientific capacity for ocean observation.

My doctoral research focused on developing remote-sensing tools to study the sounds made by marine animals living on coral reefs.
