Conall G. McNicholl


Conall is currently in his senior year at Temple University working towards a BS in Biology. In the lab, he assists Jay with his research on the calcification rates of the cold-water coral Lophelia pertusa. He is also attempting to record the ecological role of polychaetes, often found among Lopehlia pertusa, by using a time lapse experiment. Conall has many interests ranging from predator-prey interactions, and food web dynamics to organismal physiology and Neil Young. This summer when he is not broadening his lab experience learning PCRs, he will be fishing and drinking PBRs.
