Lee Karp-Boss- I am a biological oceanographer studying how physical processes in the
ocean affect growth, distribution patterns and composition of phytoplankton. My research
integrates concepts and methods from various fields including fluid dynamics, functional
morphology, chemical ecology and optics to better understand the ecology of
phytoplankton. In addition to research, I am involved in COSEE-OS, with the goal of
developing a stimulating learning environment that will promote science education, in
general, and ocean science education in particular.
I received a B.Sc. in Biology and an M.Sc. in Ecology and Oceanography from the
Hebrew University (Israel) and a Ph.D. in Oceanography from the University of
Washington. I am currently a Research Assistant Professor in the School of Marine
Sciences at the University of Maine, Orono.
Jennifer Albright- I am a marine biologist. My interests cover a wide range of topics
including: biological-physical interactions, fisheries science, and ecosystem health and
sustainability. My graduate research focused on the influence of abiotic factors
(temperature, salinity, and dissolved oxygen) on the population structure and diet of sand
shrimp in three Maine estuaries. I have recently extended my efforts outside of the
research realm and into education and outreach.
I received a B.A. in Anthropology from Brandeis University and a M.S. in Marine
Biology from the University of Maine, Orono where I am also currently a graduate
student, pursuing an M.Ed. in Science Education.
