Bodil Bluhm is a Research Associate Professor at SFOS and has a strong interest in biodiversity of Arctic invertebrates, community ecology and population dynamics of benthic and sea ice-associated fauna. Her research also focuses on coupling processes between the benthic, pelagic and sea ice realms in the Arctic through carbon flux and trophic interactions.

Her recent publications can be found on Google Scholar.


Katrin Iken is Associate Professor at SFOS and her research is mainly centered around trophic interactions between organisms. This involves dietary composition, feeding habits and consumption rates of invertebrates, macroalgal-herbivore interactions, stable isotope analysis of food web structures etc. It also involves chemical defenses of macroalgae and invertebrates against grazers and predators.


Lauren Divine is a UAF PhD graduate student interested wildlife management, marine and freshwater fisheries, and benthic invertebrate ecology.She is particularly interested in conducting collaborative research in social and biological sciences in order to address critical questions of sustainable ecosystem-based management.


The study has also been supported by the Fisheries undergraduate students Colton Lipka, Elizabeth Kandror and Kelsie Maslen as well as volunteer Daniela Stoehr and technicians Mette Kaufman and Carlos Serratos.
