Danielle Ingle, Ph.D.

Dr. Danielle Ingle has been fascinated by bones, and the stories that they hold, ever since she first visited a natural history museum as a young girl. She completed her PhD at Florida Atlantic University and now works as a postdoctoral scientist at Texas A&M University at Galveston. Her research focuses on the shape and function of bones from large marine animals such as whales, manatees, and sea turtles. Our natural world has surprises for us around every corner, and Dr. Ingle’s favorite part about writing for Smore is inspiring the scientist inside of each and every one of our readers. In her free time, you can find Dr. Ingle hiking and backpacking through Europe.
