Thomas University event to look at deep sea monsters

THOMASVILLE — The next installment of Thomas University’s Science Café series will focus on ocean creatures when Dr. Dean Grubbs of the Coastal and Marine Laboratory at Florida State University presents “Sixgill Sharks, Giant Snake Eels and Other Deep Sea Monsters of the Northern Gulf of Mexico.”


Dr. Grubbs earned a Ph.D. in Fisheries Science from the College of William & Mary in 2001. His primary research interests include ichthyology and marine ecology. Much of Dr. Grubbs’ research addresses issues necessary for managing fisheries resources. He is currently conducting research projects in the central Pacific Ocean, the western Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean investigating bluntnose sixgill sharks, bigeye sixgill sharks, deepwater stingrays and short-spined spurdogs.


The Science Café will be held at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 26, in the Campus Center on TU’s Main Campus.  Guests are welcome to arrive at 6 p.m. and enjoy the Science Café special of chicken and broccoli casserole and a salad for $5 in the Hawk’s Nest. There is no admission charge. Drinks and light snacks will be provided.


The Science Café series is presented by the Thomas University Division of Education. For more information, contact April D. Penton at
