Dr. Tim Wakefield

Tim Wakefield teaches our Marine Biology course at Au Sable - Pacific Rim during Summer Session II. He received his B.S. degree from Auburn University. He currently serves as Professor of Biology at John Brown University in Siloam Springs, AR.

Dr. Wakefield has worked on a variety of research projects including the symbiotic relationship between algae and cnidarians, Orca whale behaviour, and freshwater stream ecology.

I love working for Au Sable because it gives me the opportunity to teach Marine Biology in the field. I love to spend time with students exploring low tide areas and introducing them to the huge varieties of life that can be found there.
