Molly Welsh: Ph.D. Candidate in Environmental Science (Wetland and Water Resource Studies) Molly earned her B.S. in Environmental Science and Management with a minor in Marine and Environmental Policy from the University of Rhode Island. While at URI, Molly conducted research on nitrogen removal in headwater streams with the Watershed Hydrology Laboratory. Molly earned her M.S. in Earth Sciences from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, where her research investigated environmental drivers of denitrification in restored and unrestored streams and riparian zones in agricultural watersheds. Her current research interests include surface water-groundwater interactions, coupled biogeochemical cycles, and seasonal controls on nutrient chemistry along the stream-floodplain-riparian continuum. She is a NSF Graduate Research Fellow. (website) Kate Powers:M.S. student in Environmental Science (Wetland and Water Resource Studies) As an undergraduate at St. Lawrence University, Kate conducted research under Dr. Amanda Lavigne regarding the potential power output of pre-existing micro-hydro dams in Northern New York. This experience greatly influenced her MS concentration of Water and Wetland Resource Studies, as well as her focus on holistic, interdisciplinary approaches to environmental issues. Today, Kate is investigating the impacts of framing on people's perceptions of environmental issues.
Yasi Hassanzadeh: M.S. student in Environmental Science (Wetland and Water Resource Studies) Coming from Vassar College, Yasi is investigating how simple digitally available landscape data can be used to predict riparian function.
Emma Mrowka: M.P.S. student in Environmental Science (Wetland and Water Resource Studies) Emma came from the University of Rochester and is currently taking classes with a focus on water and wetland issues.
