Kevin Arrigo | Researcher Fellow
Department of Earth System Science | Stanford, California

Kevin is a biological oceanographer who studies the microbial ecology of polar ecosystems to better understand their role in marine food webs, nutrient cycling, and productivity. His research focuses on photosynthetic organisms living in the sea ice and the ocean and how they are able to thrive in such extreme polar conditions. He is particularly interested in how climate-induced changes in polar environments are changing biological productivity and how this might impact marine ecosystems.
