 Nell Baldwin graduated in May, 2010 and did a thesis in which she experimentally investigated the potential of pigs being fed on pasture land (versus given grain feed). Nell worked in the Arctic on the little auk study in 2007 and the Channel Island surveys in 2010! Nell has been working for GreenCorps running campaigns to protect food and water. She has some shocking stories; did you know that arsenic is often put in chicken feed?!

Julia Gleichman graduated last year and did her senior thesis on both the Arctic little auks and tropical wedge-tailed shearwaters! She worked on the Arctic little auk research project in 2008. Julia won the biology department senior prize and she is now at Pomona College conducting neuroscience research on zebrafish.

Zachary Brown graduated in 2007. He did his senior thesis on using stable isotope chemistry of grunion otoliths to assess migration patterns. Zach worked on the Arctic little auk project the summer after he graduated and is now a graduate student at Stanford University. Zach has been collecting data for his doctorate in both the Arctic and Antarctic!
