Stephanie Guida received her B.A. in environmental chemistry from Juniata College in 2007 and is currently a Ph.D. candidate in marine biosciences at the University of Delaware. This is her second field season studying genomic and physiologic adaptations in marine worms to the extreme Antarctic environment. Her main research interest is looking at shifts in gene regulation during acclimation to environmental changes. When not working in the lab, Stephanie enjoys rock climbing, mountain biking, and hunting for sea glass along the Delaware beaches.
