Veronica Malabanan Lucchese
As communications and outreach specialist for the Howard Lab at Sandy Hook, NJ, Veronica works with our researchers to make their science more accessible to the public.
Graduating with a Bachelors in Marine Affairs, Geology, and Anthropology from the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science (RSMAS), Veronica has an extensive background in understanding the processes of our natural world as well as the human practices based around them. With a minor in art and enrichment education in journalism and film, she brings a deep understanding of science and communications to her role as the Northeast Fisheries Science Center’s James J. Howard Marine Sciences Laboratory fisheries and aquaculture outreach and communications specialist.
A New York City native, she is glad to be back in the Northeast and looks forward to giving back to the community that made her. As the communication specialist, Veronica hopes to unite the marine organizations and programs in the Sandy Hook, New Jersey, area to create strong partnerships ensuring the sustainable management of our natural resources.
