Project Description

Dr. Harnik is an assistant professor in the Department of Earth and Environment at Franklin and Marshall College. He received his B.A. in geology from Oberlin College and his Ph.D. in evolutionary biology from the University of Chicago. Dr. Harnikis doctoral and postdoctoral research focused on understanding extinction risk in the oceans through analyses of the marine fossil record. At Franklin and Marshall, his research has focused increasingly on the links between modern, historical, and ancient marine systems with the goal of advancing our understanding of the biological consequences of current and future anthropogenic environmental change. Most recently, Dr. Harnik and his students have been working in the northern Gulf of Mexico comparing live populations of mollusks with the remains of historical populations preserved on the seafloor to establish pre-industrial baselines for these communities and assess the effects of human activities on coastal ecosystems.
