Education

M.S. in Marine Science, University of San Diego 2007; B.S. in Zoology, Northern Arizona University 2004

Description

I am PhD candidate working with Dr. Paul Rawson.

Research interests

I am interested in how marine organisms respond to environmental stress, particularly in the context of global climate change. I use a combination of genetic and physiological tools to monitor how blue mussels (Mytilus edulis) respond to salinity stress and how these responses vary with developmental stage.

Publications

  • Sumich, J.L. and M.A. May. 2009. Scaling and remote monitoring of tidal lung volumes of young gray whales, Eschrichtius robustus. Marine Mammal Science 25: 221 - 228.
