John A. Terschak, PhD

Laboratory Manager
Marine Science Officer

Dr. Terschak recieved his PhD in Chemical Oceanography from the University of Alaska Fairbanks - School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences looking at the fate of oil in the coastal marine environment (Susan Henrichs and David Shaw, co-advisors). His undergraduate degree is in Chemistry (Analytical) from the Rochester Insitute of Technology in New York. Before joining us, he has worked in the United States at the University of Alaska in Fairbanks and in Anchorage, American River College in California, the Illinois Insitute of Technology in Chicago, and NASA Glenn Research Centre's Plum Brook Station.  He was part of the team at the University of Hull (Jorg Hardege's lab) that discovered the chemical pheromone female crustaceans release just before mating. In addition to investigating the physical science-side of the oceans (chemistry, geology, physics), he also designs and builds scientific instrumentation for at-sea data collection and monitoring and oversees the laboratory and research shellfish hatchery.
