Adriana Aquino

Growing up in Argentina, Adriana Aquino loved nature, especially the ocean. As a young girl, she wondered what it would be like to explore the deep sea. Her passion for nature led her to become an ichthyologist, a scientist who studies fish. Adriana works at the American Museum of Natural History, where she develops educational materials, teaches, and studies Amazonian catfish.
