Randie studies trace metal biogeochemistry in seawater, with a focus on how organic compounds impact their global cycling. Her research has taken her on many research cruises, ranging from the tropics to the poles. She did her PhD at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, followed by her postdoc at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. She is now an Assistant Professor in the School of Oceanography at the University of Washington. In her free time she is an avid surfer, loves outdoor activities of any kind, and reading.

Virtual Seminar – Revealing the hidden diversity, abundance, and feeding interactions at the base of aquatic food webs – April 7th

Dr. Michelle Jungbluth is currently a Researcher at the San Francisco State University's Estuary and Ocean Science Center. She has a Bachelor's Degree in Biology from the University of Wisconsin Madison, and a M.S. and Ph.D. in Oceanography from the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa. After completing her Ph.D. she began exploring the complexities of food webs and wetland ecology in the San Francisco Estuary in the lab of Dr. Wim Kimmerer and continues there to this day.She is an ecologist, naturalist, oceanographer and marine biologist interested in the phenomena occurring at the base of aquatic food webs. In her career as a scientist she has focused on studies involving mainly zooplankton - the animals that "drift" in the sea. But they aren't just passive particles, they have unique behaviors that make them very interesting and important members of ecosystems. Her technical expertise includes characterizing life in marine and estuarine ecosystems through DNA barcoding, quantitative PCR-based studies of animal life history and food web connections, and next-generation DNA sequencing. She has also dabbled in DNA barcoding of deep-sea larval invertebrates, which is a location where we know almost nothing about organism diversity and even less about larval ecology.

Alexis Pasulka is an Assistant Professor at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. Her research explores a diversity of questions related to the composition, distribution, and interactions of marine microorganisms. By using environmental gradients over time or space, she aims to can gain insight into how organisms at base of the food web might respond to a changing climate. Alexis’ research integrates field and lab-based studies as well as multiple complimentary approaches (e.g., microscopy, molecular, and geochemical techniques). She received her BS in Biology from Arizona State University and her PhD in Biological Oceanography from Scripps Institution of Oceanography.
