Helmuth Lab


Anthony Lamattina

Anthony recently recieved his B.Sc.from Northeastern University with a Biology major and a Mathematics minor. He is interested in studying the effects of climate change, particularly thermal stress on intertidal predator-prey interactions. At the Helmuth Lab he is currently researching acclimation times of intertidal organisms, exploring the ideal length to acclimate organisms for physiological experiments.


Megan Reilly

Megan is a sophomore at Northeastern University studying for a Marine Biology major with a minor in Environmental Studies. She is very interested in ocean acidification and climate change, and enjoys powerlifting for the Northeastern Powerlifting team. Her current project at the Helmuth lab looks at how people in the local area view the changes that have occurred in coastal ecosystems around them. We are curious to hear stories from both the older and younger generation.


Paola Salas

Paola is a recent graduate of Lynn Classical High School in Lynn, MA. She is interning at the Helmuth lab and assisting Jessica Torossian in her research on the reproductive activity of local mussel populations. Paola is interested in environmental studies and conservation, she will be attending Bryn Mawr College next fall as a biology major and environmental studies minor.
