Skylar Miller came to CEI this Fall, to work with the Flats Ecology team and to lead the Patch Reef/ Lionfish IS research project. As a spring 2003 Island School alumna, Skylar is excited to be back on Eleuthera getting to experience The Island School from the other side. She grew up in upstate New York and bounced around a bit during her undergrad work – starting in Hawaii, studying for year abroad in Australia, and eventually graduating from Oregon State University in 2008 with a B.S. in Biology with a Marine Science concentration. Most recently Skylar was living in the Florida Keys teaching marine science field programs and working as a guide on ecotour boats. At Cape Eleuthera Institute, Skylar is hoping to gain valuable research experience while preparing to attend graduate school.
