Albert Boyd was recruited by the University of Miami as a research assistant while working on his B.S. with a major in biology and a minor in marine science and chemistry, for outstanding service in the multi-organizational state sponsored Redfish Stock Assessment program. After completing his B.S. degree, he continued working for more than three decades at the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science as a research associate. Boyd specializes in macro algae culture, photothermic pelagic fish breeding, and advanced water quality analysis. Other specialties include advanced light and water data logging, design of open and closed experimental research fish and coral systems. Boyd has assumed the role of Coral Carbonate Chemist with the ACCRETE Team.

Coral Carbonate Chemist for the Ocean Chemistry and Ecosystems Division’s Carbon group.
