Dr. Bruno Passarelli has been teaching Oceanography, Coastal Ecology, Marine Biology, and Human Anatomy at Saddleback since 2011. He has also been taking students for field studies in Brazil and Costa Rica with Dr. Pires since 2015. His research background is in marine parasitology. To him, being in Costa Rica with students is a profoundly rewarding experience; there, while being active outdoors, he has unique opportunities to share his love for biology in a country with a wonderful infrastructure for ecotourism.
