Rubio, Jeremy

Research Technician
School of Freshwater Sciences

Jeremy Rubio graduated from the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee in 2015 with a degree in Biological Sciences, and is currently a research technician at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee working in the Strickler Lab at the School of Freshwater Sciences.

His current research focuses on the effects of hydrostatic pressure on organisms, when combined with toxicity tests. Jeremy and his team work together on this research by performing classic EPA style toxicity tests, and use special designed equipment to apply hydrostatic pressure to their sets of experiments. They mainly work in Daphnia magna and Daphnia pulex for testing with freshwater organisms, and use Mysid and Artemia for saltwater. Their research is done through DROPPS II, which is part of the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative.
