Join AltaSea as we welcome Dr. Andrew Thurber to talk to us about Antarctica's Methane Seep Habits!
Dr. Andrew Thurber is an Assistant Professor in Oceanography and Microbiology at Oregon State University (OSU). His research focuses on understanding how the ocean works with particular emphasis on teasing apart how the ocean system – from chemistry to animals – functions as a whole. His research is largely focused in deep-sea and polar habitats. He received a BSc in Marine Biology from Hawaii Pacific University, a Masters of Marine Science from Moss Landing Marine Labs, and a PhD in Oceanography from the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. He was also National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow of Polar Regions Research, hosted at (OSU). Andrew has been an OSU faculty member for the past six years. Over his career he has spent 334 days on the ocean, 7 months living in Antarctica, accumulated over a week underwater diving under the ice, and has dove to 2700 meters depth in submersibles.
