Graduate Student in the WHOI-MIT Joint Program in Oceanography (2010-2012)
Sara graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in Geology, and from University of Edinburgh with a masters degree in Paleoceanography. Sara's research focused on coral-based reconstructions of Atlantic sea surface temperature over the past 500 years.
Postdoctoral Investigator (2008-2011)
Neal is now at the Australian Institute of Marine Science
Neal researched the effects of ocean warming on coral growth in the Central Red Sea.
Former Graduate Student in the WHOI-MIT Joint Program in Oceanography.
Michael studied coral biomineralization using molecular, geochemical and crystallographic techniques. He also reared corals in culture experiments to investigate impacts of ocean acidification on zooxanthellate and azooxanthellate corals. Michael is a former NSF graduate student fellow and MIT presidential fellow. He also won an award from the International Coral Reef Society. Michael Holcomb is now a post-doc at Centre de Scientifique, Monaco.
Graduate student in the WHOI-MIT Joint Program in Oceanography (2004-2009)
Casey Saenger is now a post-doc at Yale
Casey used both corals and foraminifera to investigate ocean temperature and circulation changes in the subtropical North Atlantic over the last 2 millenia. Casey is a former NSF graduate student fellow and won a NOAA post-doctoral fellowship to continue his studies at Yale.
Ryan is an undergraduate in the Political Science program at the University of Washington. As a WHOI guest student, Ryan conduct independent research on a range of projects on the topic of coral reefs and climate change.
WHOI Guest Student
Alice is an undergraduate student in the Geology Department at Oberlin College. As a WHOI guest student, Alice spent the summer on Bermuda with Cohen's lab group, conducting research on corals at the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences.
WHOI-RPI Post-Doctoral Fellow (2005-2006)
Rinat Gabitov is now at UCLA
Summer Student Fellow (2006)
Nick used 3-D CAT scan images of brain coral skeletons to quantify changes in coral calcification rates on Bermuda since the 1950's. Nick is pursuing a masters degree at Stanford.
