The first thing to know about Terrie Williams is that she is ranked among the 50 Most Important Women in Science in this country. Dr. Williams is a Professor of Biology at the University of California at Santa Cruz. Growing up in New Jersey, Williams was vastly disappointed at age five, when she realized she wasn't going to grow a tail and become a dog. Since that time big animals have been her passion. An evolutionary biologist by trade, Williams has studied the physiology of large predators starting with cheetahs and currently she is focused on marine mammals. At the Long Marine Lab in Santa Cruz, Williams is working with dolphins, sea otters and Monk seals.
