Congratulations to Schuyler Nardelli (Rutgers University) for completing her PhD

Her thesis was focused on understanding ecosystem dynamics in the West Antarctic Peninsula. Her thesis focused on the physical drivers of phytoplankton productivity and diversity, its relationship to the seasonal phenology in Antarctic krill dynamics, and the role in penguin foraging. Her thesis used a variety of technologies to provide unprecedented detailed insights into marine ecosystems.  Her thesis was titled “Seasonal dynamics of plankton ecology in coastal Antarctica”.
