Please welcome Benjamin Barst, the UAF Centennial Postdoctoral Scholar, who will be conducting research in the Alaska Stable Isotope Facility over the next year and a half.
Dr. Barst, an environmental scientist, is interested in the ecology and conservation of aquatic organisms, as well as how anthropogenic stressors impact environmental health. Much of his work focuses on understanding the transport and fate of contaminants in the environment, as well as how they negatively affect fish and wildlife. Barst will be working with Dr. Matthew Wooller and others to better understand how contaminants enter and move through food webs.
Dr. Barst is one of four Centennial Postdocs at UAF this year, funded via the UAF VCR’s Office. He competed against applicants from all over the world to work here at UAF, and we’re lucky to have him.
Send an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or drop by his office at 459 Duckering and learn a little more about his research.
