Dr. Mona Behl (2006-2012)
Who says scientists are boring people? A die-hard Pink Floyd fan, Mona started working in “the best radio station on the whole planet” in 2006, while pursuing her PhD in the Department of Oceanography. She served as a news anchor and then as a DJ, ultimately co-hosting Club Convergence with Sean Michaels, and hosting the Saturday Night Fish Fry. In her own words, “V89 changed my life forever. Not only did I form life-long friendships, but my experience also helped me to improve my communication skills and cemented my overarching career goal of working in the interface of science and society.” Mona currently leads NOAA Sea Grant’s Research Program in Texas where she is charged with the responsibility for various aspects of research administration, strategic planning, and development and oversight for inter/cross/trans disciplinary efforts in ocean science research.
