Dr. Fabio Moretzsohn was born and raised in São Paulo, Brazil, where he developed his love for the ocean and seashells at an early age. Fabio attended graduate school at the University of Hawaii, where he received his Ph.D. in zoology, studying cowrie systematics. In 2004 he moved to Corpus Christi, Texas, to work at the recently created Harte Research Institute (HRI) for Gulf of Mexico Studies, Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. While working on a comprehensive biotic inventory of the Gulf of Mexico, a project sponsored by HRI, with 140 taxonomic experts, Fabio became involved with and contributed to the Texas Seashells book (see below). The biotic inventory of the Gulf of Mexico was converted into an online database, the Biodiversity of the Gulf of Mexico Database.
Dr. Moretzsohn is one of the authors of the Encyclopedia of Texas Seashells, and the co-author of The Book of Shells: A Life-Size Guide to Identifying and Classifying Six Hundred Seashells .
