Dr. Lee Pollock, professor emeritus of Drew University, has been committed to marine invertebrates and the New England coast for most of his life. After receiving an undergraduate degree from Bates College, Lee worked toward his masters and doctorate through the University of New Hampshire while at the Marine Biological Lab in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. He then taught for 33 years in the biology department at Drew.
Lee's research centered on "water bears," which are marine members of the phylum Tardigrada, and other aspects of benthic invertebrates in marine and freshwater sediments. Now into retirement, he is happy to be back in a research lab "without having to attend all the meetings."
As a Wells Reserve volunteer, Lee has been a mentor and contributing scientist who brings substantial value and productivity to the research program.
