We are three marine ecologists and we are assessing the impacts of climate change on intertidal marine communities from our southern to northern borders.  From July  - September, 2016, we will be traveling to 12 sites from San Diego, CA to Olympic Coast, WA.  To learn more about our reseach and coastal adventures check out our blog and follow us on social media.  Thank you so much to our funding agencies and sponsors for making this trip possible. If you want to help us out on our trip (gas is expensive!) check out our donation page. If you have any questions about us or our trip tweet us at #TheBioBus.  We can't wait to share our findings with you all!

   WHO ARE WE   

Nyssa Silbiger, PhD

I'm currently a post-doctoral researcher in the Sorte Lab at the University of California at Irvine. I am focusing on the ability of algae in intertidal communities to buffer global changes in ocean chemistry.

Savannah Todd

I just graduated from UCI with a major in chemistry. I've been an undergraduate researcher in the Sorte Lab since Spring 2015 and am excited to continue working in marine biology over the summer.​

Piper Wallingford

I just finished my first year as a PhD student in the Sorte Lab at the University of California Irvine. I'm interested in how climate change may affect predator-prey relationships and shifting dynamics of keystone species.
