Our lab focuses on studying trace metals in the marine environment- "trace" because they are in very low concentrations in the open ocean. Metals can both essential nutrients at low levels in the ocean, or sometimes toxic to microorganisms in coastal environments.
We have projects focusing on measuring the distributions of metals in vastly different environments- from the "desert-like" reaches of the North Pacific near Hawaii to the harsh but biologically productive Southern Ocean near Antarctica.
The Bundy lab is not currently accepting new students, but email if interested. Learn how to apply for a PhD or Master's program, or to learn more about getting involved in the School of Oceanography at the University of Washington.
