A new semester kicks off at the University of Alaska Southeast, bringing six new faces to the Arts and Sciences Department on the Juneau campus.
Heidi Pearson, assistant professor of marine biology, anatomy and physiology
Heidi Pearson joins UAS from Gloster, Mass. Pearson did research at Stony Brook University on Long Island, N.Y. prior to her move to UAS. She and her husband decided to come to Juneau to cut back on commute time and for the close proximity to her study species, which include dusky dolphins, humpback whales, sea otters and bottle nose dolphins.
