Samuel E. Georgian


Sam joined the lab in 2010. He holds a BS in biology and a BA in environmental studies from Hobart College, NY. His current research focuses on explaining the patchy distribution of cold-water corals and taking a mechanistic approach towards understanding their response to environmental stressors. One of the primary aims of this work is to develop environmental niche models that help quantify the environmental requirements of Lophelia pertusa and predict its occurrence at unexplored locations. In addition, he is conducting physiological experiments in order to assess L. pertusa’s metabolic response to environmental stressors.
