Research Experience for Undergraduates – 2015

This summer, I had the pleasure of mentoring an undergraduate student through the National Science Foundation’s Research Experience for Undergraduates program. Clara Woolner, who is now a senior at Bard College in New York, spent the summer learning how to run stable isotope analysis, calculate whisker growth rates, run myoglobin assays, and determine blood volume using Evans Blue methods. Her final project was titled “Stable isotope analysis reveals variation in the summer feeding behavior of female Weddell seals (Leptonychotes weddellii) with different reproductive histories”. Clara was a fantastic addition to the lab, and we are very grateful for all of her hard-work a dedication. Good luck with your senior year, Clara!
