Project Description

Dr. MartInez-ColUn is an assistant professor in the School of the Environment at Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University, a Courtesy Professor in the Department of Environmental Science at the University of South Florida, and adjunct faculty at the Savannah River Field Station. He received his Ph.D. in oceanography from the University of South Florida and a B.S. and M.S. in geology from the University of Puerto Rico. His research expertise is in coastal ecosystems, specifically coastal and marine ecology and biogeochemistry. His research portfolio examines aspects of environmental micropaleontology, geochemistry, and pollutants in conjunction with bioindicators in short- and long-term monitoring efforts. Dr. MartInez-ColUn takes a novel approach to studying anthropogenic stressors such as chemical pollutants and microplastics, focusing on a type of single-celled organisms called foraminifera, which have calcium carbonate skeletons and tend to live in sediments.
