Juliana Cornett received a BS in Biological Sciences from the University of California, Davis, and an MS in Marine Science from Moss Landing Marine Laboratories through California State University, Monterey Bay. For her master's work, Juliana focused on physiological responses to hypoxia in juvenile flatfishes. Juliana first came to AFSC as an Alaska Sea Grant State Fellow, and focused on mariculture research for her fellowship. Primarily, she worked on a long-term monitoring project at a local oyster farm assessing how environmental conditions and phytoplankton community composition impact harmful algal blooms (HABs) and HAB toxins, and subsequently the health and toxicity of farmed Pacific oysters. Now, Juliana works as a Biological Science Lab Technician for both the Ecosystem Monitoring and Assessment (EMA) Program and the Genetics Program.
