Katrin Iken is an Associate Professor of Marine Biology, Marine Invertebrates, and Marine Plants. Her research is mainly centered around trophic interactions between organisms. This involves dietary composition, feeding habits and consumption rates of invertebrates, macroalgal-herbivore interactions, stable isotope analysis of food web structures etc. It also involves chemical defenses of macroalgae and invertebrates against grazers and predators. She is generally interested in shallow water community diversity, dynamics and ecology, especially in both polar regions, and in deep-sea communities.
Iken reviewed the following ACMP classroom lessons for scientific accuracy:
