Scoot Science hires Dr. Sherry Lippiatt
Scoot welcomes Dr. Sherry Lippiatt as a Risk and Finance Communications Specialist. Sherry is an ocean scientist with over a decade of marine policy experience. She earned her Ph.D. from the University of California, Santa Cruz, where her research focused on the biogeochemistry of iron in seawater, and was a 2010 Sea Grant Knauss Marine Policy Fellow. At Scoot, Sherry supports Scoot's risk and finance and sales teams, communicating the value of Scoot's ocean analytics and finance tools.
I'm excited about Scoot's approach to reducing ocean risk and the opportunity to bring new capital to the aquaculture industry.
Sherry comes to Scoot after eleven years with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Marine Debris Program. She launched NOAA's Marine Debris Monitoring and Assessment Project, for which she was honored as a 2016 NOAA National Ocean Service Team Member of the Year. Sherry has experience working across sectors to develop and implement the California Ocean Litter Prevention Strategy, and has implemented dozens of marine debris prevention, removal, and research projects.
