Neuer Group – Arizona State University
Dr. Susanne Neuer is an Associate Professor in Organismal, Integrative, and Systems Biology at Arizona State University and co-PI on the Trophic BATS project. Her main research interest is the dynamics of the biological carbon pump and the role of ocean biota in the carbon export to the deep sea. Her group also works on several aspects of plankton ecology, including model systems of trophic interactions and molecular-based analysis of plankton diversity. Her team includes Francesca De Martini (Ph.D. student), Megan Wolverton (undergraduate research assistant), and Dr. Stephanie Wilson (visiting postdoctoral scholar from Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution).
Elin Haugen is a Research Technician at the Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences in Maine. She specializes in using flow cytometry techniques and is running the instrument on board the AE while out at sea. http://www.bigelow.org/
