SEANET Seminar – Off the Menu? Mussel Byssal Attachment in a Warmer, High CO2 Ocean
December 6, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm| Free
Speaker: Emily Carrington
Professor, Department of Biology, University of Washington
National Science Foundation, Program Director, Physiological Mechanisms and Biomechanics
Emily Carrington is a professor of Biology at the University of Washington and a National Science Foundation program director. Carrington’s research program, in its broadest sense, investigates the physiological ecology of marine organisms. She is particularly interested in the functional design of
organisms that inhabit physically demanding environments, such as wave-swept rocky shores, where thermal, osmotic, and hydrodynamic conditions can be extreme. Her research involves both plants and animals and spans many levels of biological organization, from the mechanics of biological
materials, to the persistence of populations, to the characterization of the physical environment and how influences biological processes.
