Gillian Reily

Gillian Reily grew up in Southeastern Michigan and spent most of her summers in Florida with her grandparents where she fell in love with dolphins at a young age. Growing up she knew that she wanted to work with dolphins and her passion led her to seek an internship with the Dolphin Communication Project in the fall of 2013. During her time with DCP, Gillian helped digitize and measure whistles from a group of dolphins located at Dolphin Encounters in The Bahamas. Check out the thesis page for Gillian’s thesis abstract. Gillian received her BS in Zoology (concentration in Neurology and Animal Behavior) from Michigan State University in 2012 and an MS in Marine Biology from Nova Southeastern University in 2014
