My name is John Carroll, and I am currently a post doctoral research associate in the Department of Biology and Marine Biology at the University of North Carolina Wilmington.  I work with Dr. Chris Finelli, and am currently focused on issues affected eastern oysters – landscape setting, mesopredators and parasites.

More about me:

I attended the now defunct Southampton College as an undergraduate and graduated in 2004.  While there, I was able to gain many great experiences – volunteering at the New York Aquarium on Coney Island, Brooklyn, NY, spending a summer working for the National Marine Fisheries Service, traveling to the Caribbean (Curacao and Bonaire) on dive trips with other students, spending a semester on a 100 foot schooner sailing the Atlantic from Massachusetts to Puerto Rico, and studying tropical marine biology in Vanuatu in the South Pacific.

I received my PhD From the School of Marine    and Atmospheric Sciences of Stony Brook University.  My research involved investigating the roles that habitat and predation on bay scallop populations through field and lab experiments, with the goal of helping make the current restoration efforts more efficient.

In my life away from school I enjoy going to see the Mets, watching the Giants, and playing softball and shooting darts.
