What drew you to the study of ocean acidification in Alaska?
My background comprises a focus on sea-air CO2 exchange in coastal settings, and during my PhD I did some work in southeast Alaska. After finishing my degree, I got lucky and landed a postdoc at UAF’s Ocean Acidification Research Center where I began thinking beyond gas exchange to manifestations of OA.
