Helmuth Lab


Richard Judge

Richard is a Senior and Three Seas Program student at Northeastern. He is interested in examining how climate change impacts important marine species and the application of marine science to public policy. His hobbies include: sailing, running, and skiing. This spring, he plans to conduct his senior capstone on robomussel grouping and the accuracy of their temperature data collection as it pertains to wild mussels.


Tim Briggs

Tim is a third year at Northeastern University pursuing a Marine Biology major and a minor in photography. His work at the Helmuth lab has chiefly concerned photography and filmmaking for science communication, including gigapans and short films. He is interested in conservation filmmaking and photography; telling stories about the researchers and their subjects, as well as the effects of climate change on ocean ecosystems.


Daniel Litchmore

Daniel is a third year at Northeastern University pursuing a double major in Geology and Chemistry. He is very interested in the science behind environmental remediation, mineral analysis and the study of the various natural systems that drive the Earth. His current project at the Helmuth lab uses GIS (Geographic Information Systems) to assist in the creation of comprehensive biological thermal performance maps that gives the invested parties a better idea in the health status and survival probability of the aquatic organisms living in the urban coastal environments. He also uses GIS to convert other types of raw data into comprehensive visual models.
