  • Postdoctoral fellow at the Canadian Rivers Institute at the University of New Brunswick Saint John

Professor Gahl joined Minerva after teaching biology and field ecology at Bates College, the University of Alaska-Southeast, and the University of Missouri. As an ecologist with unending curiosity, Gahl is motivated by puzzling scientific questions, rather than discipline-specific projects. She served as postdoctoral fellow at the Canadian Rivers Institute at the University of New Brunswick-Saint John and earned a Ph.D. in Ecology from the University of Maine.

Gahl’s approach to teaching is to impart skills so that students can critically solve problems. She is excited to be part of the team at Minerva to design creative active learning sessions focused on these skills to help students excel both within and outside the classroom.
