Current Graduate Students
- Zachary Cooper WELCOME! examining 34H/phage 9A interactions and host specificity in sea ice and cryopeg brines as a part of the Moore Foundation proposal “Understanding How Virus Infection Affects Gene Flow and Microbial Evolution in Extreme Polar Environments“. (zcooper AT uw DOT edu).
- Gordon “Max” Showalter, Will defend his Master’s Degree on Feb 21, 2017 completing his work on bacterial swimming behaviors (motility) in cold and subzero temperatures to help understand microbial colonization of sea ice and pursue the use of motility as a biosignature in extreme and extraterrestrial environments. (gshowalt AT uw DOT edu). Check out his Town Hall talk. He attended NSF’s 10th Antarctic Biology Training Program at Palmer Station this summer 2016.
- Evan Firth, got her MS on an NSF-funded project on Seasonal Synergy between Bacterial Osmoprotection and Algal Production in Sea Ice (firth.evan AT gmail.com). Evan attended the 2013 May Sea Ice Field Course.
UW Astrobiology Rotation Students/Visiting Students
- Paul Kintner (UW AB program) examining the fractionation of bacteria in sea ice as it freezes with respect to freezing rate and the presence of gels. (kintner AT uw DOT edu).
