Faculty Feature: Ellen Marsden

A fish that changes the shape of its skull sounds like something out of a science fiction novel. But professor of fisheries Ellen Marsden and a dedicated student researcher discovered that sculpin do just that. 

Marsden has taught fisheries courses in the Rubenstein School and conducted research on Lake Champlain for more than 20 years.
