MS Students


John Skutnik, BS

I am currently a MS student specializing in Aquatic Sciences, chaired by Dr. Kevin Strychar at the Annis Water Resources Institute – Grand Valley State University.

My current research interests involve quantifying the effects of climate change on mesophotic coral in Florida. I am particularly interested in ship groundings, disease, and their response to thermal stress. My work is supported by a NASA Graduate Fellowship and a Presidential Award from GVSU.
