Research and Professional Interests
For 20 years, Grasman has studied the effects of pollution on Great Lakes colonial waterbirds, focusing on three species: Herring Gulls, Black-Crowned Night Herons and Caspian Terns. By testing these birds, he provides the data needed to guide cleanup efforts and inform government agencies, like the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service which sponsors his work, of the magnitude of the problem.
Life Outside of Calvin College
Keith and his wife, Suzanne, have two young daughters who keep Keith busy going to rehearsals and performances.
