Kristen Whalen Earns NSF Award

The assistant professor of biology was awarded $356,028 as part of a larger collaborative grant to fund her work exploring why certain "infochemicals" in the ocean cause phytoplankton death. This summer, Whalen is in Norway conducting field work with her student Anna Schrecengost '18 at the Norwegian National Mesocosm Centre at the Espegrend Marine Biological Station to understand how a bacterial molecule, or "infochemical," she identified—known as HHQ—influences the dynamics of natural communities of bacteria and phytoplankton.
