Climate Change Cinema explores pairings of current, classic, cult, and films with lively introductions and conversations by notable figures from the world of science and technology around the topics of climate change and sea level rise. As our community is situated between the Everglades and the Atlantic, we seek to illuminate and explore scientific issues related to our environment that have a tangible impact on our lives.

For our launch event, we’re presenting the South Florida premiere of SAVING ATLANTIS, a documentary about one of the most consequential issues of our time: the dramatic decline of global coral reef ecosystems and the impact on human populations that depend on them.

A post-film roundtable discussion will be led by Stephanie Rosales, a research scientist with the University of Miami and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association and include a panel of distinguished scientist from UM Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science and Oregon State University.

POST-FILM DISCUSSION

Dr. Stephanie Rosales is a Miami local and earned her B.S., at Florida International University (FIU) where she majored in marine biology. She then went on to pursue her Ph.D. in microbiology at Oregon State University (OSU). She is now a Senior Research Associate at the University of Miami (UM) and working for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Here she applies high-throughput sequencing methods and bioinformatics analysis to examine the microbes in marine environments.

Dr. Van Hooidonk earned his Ph.D. from Purdue University in 2009 and previously attended Utrecht University in the Netherlands where he earned his B.Sc and M.Sc. Dr. van Hooidonk is interested in utilizing global climate models and satellite data to forecast future risk and uncertainty for coral reefs under climate change and ocean acidification. He’s been working with the University of Miami and NOAA AOML since 2010.

Nikki Traylor-Knowles is an integrative cell biologist that studies the evolution of immunity and regeneration in corals. She got her BS/MS at Johns Hopkins University, PhD at Boston University, and did her postdoctoral research at Stanford University. Her laboratory at University of Miami is interested in understanding how climate change affects coral immune systems, as well as, identifying the mechanisms of wound healing and regeneration that are used by corals. Her laboratory uses techniques in cell biology, genomics, and biochemistry to answer these questions.

Ryan McMinds received an undergraduate degree from the University of Miami, where he fell in love with evolutionary biology during a research trip to the Galapagos Islands. He is now completing a PhD in microbiology at Oregon State University where he is working in the Vega-Thurber Lab on the Global Coral Microbiome Project, studying the microbial communities that associate with corals in search for clues to the causes of their decline.
