Andrew David Thaler has always loved the ocean. “I’m that obnoxious kid that wanted to be a marine biologist since I was 3,” he says. “I’ve wanted to work in the deep sea since before I can remember.”

Thaler now holds a PhD in marine science and conservation from Duke. He lives in the Bay Area working to preserve the species living in and around deep sea vents, particularly as these underwater fissure are explored for possible mineral drilling.
