Pronouns: he/him/his



Dr. Max Helmberger is a postdoctoral researcher in the Rotjan Lab and lecturer in the Biology Department. Originally a soil ecologist studying belowground biological control before moving into soil invertebrate interactions with microplastics, his current project is to investigate microplastic contamination of deepwater coral samples.
