COD RESEARCHER FROM ICELAND VISITS CAMPUS

Timothy Grabowski
1/14/2010 —

"Cold" is the word around campus these days as temperatures recently dropped well into the teens. But research scientist Timothy Grabowski is likely to feel right at home on Wednesday, Jan. 20 as he visits Penn State Brandywine to discuss his cod research in Reykjavik, Iceland, a place where temperatures rarely reach 60 degrees, even in July.

"Cod move in mysterious ways: divergence and diversity within the Icelandic cod stock" will be held at 12:30 p.m. in the Tomezsko Building, room 101.

A researcher with a Ph.D. in Zoology and a love for all things fish, Grabowski will share his experiences in the icy country as he explores these mystifying movements of cod. With research projects from Georgia to Texas, and of course, at the Institute of Biology at the University of Iceland, Grabowski will discuss his research group's exploration of the diversity within the Icelandic cod stock and its implications to management.

This presentation is free and open to the public. For more information about Grabowski's research, visit http://notendur.hi.is/tbg/.
