Gulnick studies the biogeochemical controls in bacterial activity and
production in aquatic environments and, specifically, the relationship between
bacterial production and phytoplankton primary production in Sebago Lake and
Casco Bay. She recently co-authored a paper on patterns of carbon mineralization
and bio-irrigation in the sediments of Casco Bay.
good deal of Professor Gulnick’s focus has been on sustainability initiatives
at Saint Joseph's College. As sustainability coordinator, she oversees the
campus Eco-Reps, a group of paid students who promote environmentally
sustainable behavior among their peers. Outside of work, Professor Gulnick
says, “I love my hanging out with my family on Peaks Island, appreciating the
beautiful natural world that Maine offers, including our mountains, lakes, and especially
our stunning coastline, as well as training for and competing in endurance
athletic events. I have also practiced yoga steadily for over 15 years.”
