Nicholas Hammerman

Nicholas Hammerman is an invertebrate geneticist pursing a master’s degree in Biological Oceanography from the University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez. He is currently conducting a study on population connectivity of a species of plating coral, known as Agaricia lamarcki. He hopes to shed light on how benthic organisms are interconnected with one another, ultimately either displaying patterns of panmixia or as isolated populations. He is a dive master as well as a certified AAUS scientific diver, and is supervised by Dr. Nick Schizas.
