We are happy to welcome our newest member of the team, Dr. Linda Eggertsen. Linda is an extremely skilled field biologist and we look forward to her work on fish herbivory across terrigenous runoff gradients.
We said a bittersweet goodbye to our Post-Doc researcher Jeroen Brijs as his fellowship at the Johansen Lab has come to a close. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors and look forward to his publications about the effects of marine heatwaves on Hawaiian coral reef fish. You will be missed around the lab Jeroen!
We are happy to welcome ʻAʻaliʻi Keling (MSc) and Jonathan Rosen (MSc) to our lab, whom are both working on ways to improve fish recruitment and health in Hawaii.
The Johansen Fish Resilience Lab is happy to announce that we just received a generous NSF grant to study the effect of sediment runoff on herbivorous fish functions. This project will start in Feb 2023. Please see our "join" tab for open positions in our lab.
Kat is a familiar face to the lab as she has helped out with previous Johansen Lab field work and other projects. Now, Kat will be researching the effects of sediment-laden algal turfs on herbivorous fish interactions! Welcome!
Big congratulations to PhD student Leon Tran in passing his oral comprehensive exam for the UHM Marine Biology Graduate Program. Good work Leon!
Welcome to our new PhD student, Jasmine Reighard. Jasmine will be studying how declining water quality affects reef fish stress responses!

Welcome to our new PhD student, Mathias Schackmann Soerensen. Mathias will be investigating the effects of sedimentation/turbidity on coral reef fishes.
Welcome to our new postdoc Dr Jeroen Brijs. Jeroen will be investigating the effects of ocean warming on feeding energetics in reef fishes
