Carolyn Holl Ph.D.Assistant Professor of Biology
Chair, Department of Natural Sciences
Office: 206C AC, Hawaii Loa campus
Education: B.S., double major: Biology and Environmental Science, DePaul University; Ph.D., Biological Oceanography, Georgia Institute of Technology
Professional Interests: Marine microbiology in both oligotrophic and eutrophic environments; Microbial nitrogen and carbon cycling in aquaculture; Stable isotopes; Microbial ecology
Courses: BIOL3040 Microbiology; BIOL4041 Environmental Microbiology Laboratory; BIOL2051/3 General Biology Laboratory
Personal Interests: Outrigger canoe paddling, swimming, hiking, traveling, reading.
Principal Research Interests: Dr. Holl uses the naturally-occurring stable isotopes of Nitrogen and Carbon to explore microbial N and C cycle pathways. Her work has spanned oligotrophic open ocean environments, eutrophic coastal environments, and high density recirculating aquaculture systems.
