Sheron Luk

Graduate Student

Sheron Luk started her PhD in Chemical Oceanography at the MIT/WHOI Joint Program in the Fall of 2016. She conducted research with Dr. Scott Doney to understand the influences of coastal water quality on the value of recreational shellfishing. She currently studies biogeochemical cycling in salt marshes with Dr. Amanda Spivak to understand processes that are critical to pond formation on the marsh platform. She is interested in the ways in which deviations in coastal biogeochemical processes, as a result of biophysical and anthropogenic forcings, can impact coastal communities and economies.
