Team Bravo(!) 043

I've been remiss by not introducing the members of our 2011 research team. I'll post more complete introductions and detail each person's role in the project at a later date. For now, from left to right:

Laura Von Rosk - Art/science collaborator (Schroon Lake, NY)
Cecilia Shin - Lead research diver and camp safety officer (University of California Santa Cruz)
Dr. Jan Pawlowski - Molecular protistologist (University of Geneva, Switzerland)
Danielle Woodward - Youngest research diver in Antarctica (Hilo, HI)
Hilary Hudson - Research diver, documentary film maker
Dr. Sam Bowser - Principal Investigator (Albany, NY)
Dr. Andrew Gooday (pictured below in the Explorers Cove lab) - Biological oceanographer (National Oceanography Centre, Southampton, U.K.)

Our project centers on characterizing the ~20 new species of foraminiferan protists we have identified in past work, and on obtaining information on the genetics of these organisms.

More about that as results pour in!
