During his time at APU he was the primary lab technician for the aquarium lab located on campus for 3 years, a research associate on a graduate student’s thesis as an acoustic technician, an intern with a public aquarium, and supervised as a marine mammal observer (MMO) with the APU Scientific Marine Mammal Monitoring Program (SMMM).
Since graduation in 2010, Zack has had his senior project from APU accepted for publication, co-authored an annual report for the Port of Anchorage regarding the behavior of Cook Inlet beluga whales, worked for a local environmental consulting firm as a MMO, published a photograph in a children’s book, and instructed the Aquarium Biology course at APU as an adjunct instructor of environmental science.
