March 4, 2015
Sonia Tenorio, Ph.D. student in Oceanography, has arrived to work with Dr. David Elliott through the end of February in the laboratory of Dr. Paul Bukaveckas. Their work will concentrate on zooplankton ecology with the goal of using population dynamics modeling to develop estimates of non-predatory mortality from her data on abundances and live dead composition of copepods from Mejillones (23ºS), Northern Chile.
Ms. Tenorio received her Masters in Aquatic System Ecology from the University of Antofagasta, Chile, and her Bachelors in Marine Biology from the University of Concepción, Chile.
