Susanne Menden-Deuer


I am a seagoing oceanographer, with research interests focused on marine microbial food web structure and function. Research in my lab combines in-situ work in the coastal ocean in temperate and polar regions, laboratory measurements of plankton behavior and physiology and theoretical modeling work to establish mechanistic linkages between microscopic and macroscopic processes (e.g. predator movements to encounter rates to population dynamics). Since 2008, I have been a member of the faculty of the Graduate School of Oceanography at the University of Rhode Island and was recently promoted to Associate Professor. Before coming to URI, I taught at Western Washington University. I received my Ph.D. in Oceanography in 2004 at the University of Washington with Danny Grünbaum.

On this cruise I am excited to collaborate with the excellent team to figure out what krill do in the winter (brrr).

    Hi Susanne – I came upon the STRES website. Very cool. I as happy to see that you were able to bring along the FlowCAM. I hope that you are getting some good data from ‘Flo’ and keeping warm down there. It will be in the upper 80’s along the coast of Maine tomorrow. Say hi to Tatiana for me.
