Heidi Sosik


Fellow Term: 4/1/03-3/31/06

Heidi Sosik is a senior scientist in Biology. Heidi studies the growth of the microscopic plants (phytoplankton) that are the base of most marine food webs. She uses innovative, optically-based approaches to measuring plankton in the ocean. During her time as a fellow, she worked with John Trowbridge to gain a new level of understanding of the physical effects on biological activity. Heidi's fellowship was held jointly between COI and the Ocean Life Institute.
