Andrew Barfield, Research Technician

Andrew obtained his B.S. degree in Environmental Sciences with a minor and concentration in Marine Science from North Carolina State University in May, 2023. His research interests are broadly within the fields of marine ecology and conservation biology, with a more specific focus on global change and how anthropogenic and environmental stressors are impacting marine ecosystems. During his undergraduate career, he spent time at NC State’s Center for Marine Sciences and Technology facility conducting conservation research on the Crystal skipper, a rare butterfly that is endemic to the Crystal Coast of North Carolina. As a research technician in the Wong Lab, he is seeking to gain experience in studying how marine invertebrates are responding to climate change and changes in their environment.
