Dr. Laurie Raymundo has been a professor at the UOG Marine Lab since joining the University in 2014. She is a coral biologist, interested in the impacts of human stressors on corals and coral reefs.

She has taught the writing class (BI503: Scientific Writing and Biological Literature) since 2015. The science writing assignments that you see published in Guampedia constitute an exercise in teaching graduate students how to communicate their science to lay people and the general public. Students are required to choose a topic which will communicate some aspect of scientific study or the environment of Guam, to make more scientific information about Guam available to the users of Guampedia.

Students taking this course at UOG are from the MS Biology, MS Environmental Science and MS Sustainable Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources.
