Congratulation Grace Saba who was granted tenure by Rutgers. This is a well deserved honor. Dr. Grace Saba joined the Rutgers faculty as an Assistant Professor in 2015. Grace is one of the most dedicated and talented teachers in the Department. She has been anchor teacher in several upper division courses required by the marine science undergraduate majors. She has graduated two PhD and one Masters Student. Dr. Saba’s research is focused on understanding how marine organisms respond to their current and future environments and how those responses then feedback on the ecosystem. This research focus is important given observations that the ocean is undergoing accelerating physical and chemical changes. Increasing ocean temperatures and acidification directly affect organismal metabolism and physiology, which in turn affects growth and eventually population demographics. Congratulations Grace for great work done.
