Jay J. Lunden


Jay received his Ph.D. in the summer of 2013! Jay is now a post-doc at UC Santa Barbara.

He is broadly interested in the dynamics of oceanic carbon chemistry and the effects of ongoing ocean acidification on organismal physiology. He is also interested in the mechanisms of coral calcification, and uses the cold-water scleractinian Lophelia pertusa as a model in his research. Jay has received funding from the Society of Integrative and Comparative Biology (SICB) to explore expression of calcification genes in L. pertusa, and continues to apply for external funding to expand his research program. During the summer, Jay taught Experimental Marine Biology labs with Andrea Quattrini. Jay received his B.S. in Biology from Temple in 2007 and plans to pursue research in marine invertebrate ecophysiology after graduation.
