Welcome to David Shiffman’s online CV

Hello, and welcome to my online CV! I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Miami researching shark biology and conservation, as well as how information related to ocean science and conservation spreads through social media.  My research interests include the feeding behavior and ecology of sharks with a focus on stable isotope analysis, as well as shark fisheries management and conservation policy.

I am also an experienced science communicator. If you’re a teacher, I’m always happy to speak to your class or organization about shark science and conservation. If you’re a journalist, I’m always happy to answer questions¬†for your story. Feel free to contact me with any questions at WhySharksMatter@gmail.com, on my Facebook fan page, or on twitter @WhySharksMatter.
