Interview with Dr. Frank Quinn
Tell me a little about GLERL
GLERL is a broad-based interdisciplinary laboratory. The researchers here study all aspects of the Great Lakes environment, such as the entire food chain from bacteria to fish, waves, ice, current, and water levels. Our recent focus has been the potential impacts of climate change.
How many researchers are at GLERL?
Our researchers have varied backgrounds. We have zooplankton biologists, hydrologists, atmospheric scientists, remote sensing specialists, oceanographers, geochemists and nuclear physicists on staff!
In a broad-based lab, everyone learns from each other, and you have a real synergy from people working together in different fields to really understand the Great Lakes system. They then can use that understanding to help create better resource policies for the Great Lakes.
In an effort to highlight Great Lakes careers for students interested in pursuing a career on the lakes, TEACH will be conducting interviews with professionals from around the region. Contact us if you would like to make a suggestion!
