Paul Bump

Ph.D. Student in Biology, admitted Summer 2016
I seek to better understand the molecular underpinnings of regeneration, the conservation of regenerative programs in deuterostome evolution, and the links between regeneration and development.

Benjamin Burford

Ph.D. Student in Biology, admitted Autumn 2015
I earned my B.S. in field and wildlife biology from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo in 2013. After graduation, I worked for the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute and the National Marine Fisheries Service in the respective fields of deep sea and anadromous fish ecology. In fall 2015, I enrolled in the Biology PhD program at Stanford University where my research utilizes in situ footage, scientific surveys, animal-borne data loggers, oceanographic data and molecular techniques to understand the migratory behaviors of ecologically and economically important Pacific squids and the environmental (...)

Richard Grewelle

Ph.D. Student in Biology, admitted Autumn 2016
Richard Grewelle is a current PhD student motivated to understand ecological and evolutionary underpinnings of wildlife disease systems. Prior research areas involve bioinformatics, phylogenetics, and disease ecology. Although with previous experience in terrestrial diseases, including Y. pestis (plague), Richard pursues marine disease ecology due to the lack of knowledge surrounding systems we hardly encounter. Marine diseases present significant challenges to not only biologists; they may devastate fragile ecosystems supporting fisheries or providing ecological services. Richard works (...)

Diana LaScala-Gruenewald

I am a Ph.D. candidate at Hopkins Marine Station of Stanford University, slated to graduate in Spring 2017. As part of Dr. Mark Denny’s research group, I explore the ways that small-scale environmental variation influences the foraging behavior of intertidal organisms. I am particularly intrigued by the question: How do relatively simple animals navigate complex and variable environments? To get at this issue, I employ a diverse set of field, lab and computer-based methods. Ultimately, I hope my research will shed some light on the relative roles of evolution and environment in shaping (...) Personal Website

Our ocean is stratified; warm water floats above denser cold water. This seems basic, but it is a pre-condition for some fundamental environmental processes. The layered water column allows for the propagation of internal waves in the boundary between the warm and cold water layers that shoal and break just like surface waves, though may be up to 100m tall. Internal waves are critical for transporting nutrients from deep water into the kelp forest, but are also oxygen depleted (and low pH). My research seeks to understand the fate of these hypoxic internal waves inside the kelp forest/ (...)
