Teaches Biology and Environmental courses including Concepts in Biology, Introduction to Biology, Physiology, Ecology and the Environmental Challenge, and Seminar and Research Thesis.
Steven Jury is a broadly trained animal physiologist
interested in the physiology, behavior, and ecology of aquatic and marine invertebrates
and fish. Specific interests include sensory physiology, physiological ecology,
and aquaculture technology development. He has served as a senior research
scientist and consultant for Aquaculture Associates and previously taught at
both the University of New England and the State University of New York.
Professor Jury is also on the marine science advisory boards for the Maine
Technology Institute and Southern Maine Community College. In his free time,
Professor Jury enjoys playing soccer and taking his dog on hiking excursions.
