Aaron Ninokawa Awarded NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship

Congratulations to Aaron Ninokawa for being awarded an NSF Postdoctoral Fellowship!

We asked Aaron to tell us more about the project, and this is what he said: "The NSF Ocean Sciences postdoctoral research fellowship will allow me to test how the ability of marine habitat-forming species to alter seawater chemistry can drive community resilience to chemical stress associated with processes like ocean acidification and rain events. I will be working at the University of Washington, Friday Harbor Laboratory with Dr. Emily Carrington. I'm excited to be able to combine elements of my graduate research (characterizing how habitat-formers modify chemistry and determining which chemical parameter(s) drive species sensitivity to altered chemistry) into a larger framework while learning a new system and working with a great community."
