Allison Bailey’07 conducted research on little auks in 2006. After graduation she went back to the Norwegian Arctic on a Fulbright grant studying Arctic flora. She then went on to get a Master’s of Science degree at University Center of Svalbard where she studied the winter behavior of zooplankton in Arctic fjords. Allison is currently studying birds in the Sierras where she must be right at home because it is cold and snowy there!

Christine Cass’05 and Colin Fiske’05 studied grunion and woodrats during the summer of 2005. Christine just finished her doctorate at University of South Florida and next month they will both move back to California where Christine will be a professor in the Oceanography Department at Humbolt State University.
