Susan W. Mills
Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
|Susan Mills came to Woods Hole in 1975, after finishing her bachelor’s degree at Brown University. Working first at the Marine Biological Laboratory and then at WHOI, she has participated in projects including studies of population genetics of polychaete worms, identification of hydrothermal vent invertebrates in plankton samples, measurement of trace element concentrations in bivalve shells, and coral colonization at seamounts. Her work takes her to salt marshes in Massachusetts and deep-sea sites in the Atlantic and tropical Pacificfar too often, in the opinion of her husband. In her “spare time,” she enjoys working on her lab’s Web site, studying Spanish, and spending time with her family, especially traveling to South America with her two children to visit the countries where they were born.
