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.
Casey Pearce: M.S. student in Environmental Science (Wetland and Water Resource Studies) Casey earned her B.S. in Environmental Science with a minor in Watershed Management from Mansfield University of Pennsylvania. During her time at Mansfield, she conducted research examining the water quality impacts from agriculture runoff. This sparked her interest in research and watershed systems, leading her to continue her education at ESF in the Water and Wetland Resource Studies program. Her main research interests are erosion, hydrology, water quality.
Courtney Nichols: M.P.S. student in Environmental Science (Wetland and Water Resource Studies) Courtney recently graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Geography and Environmental Resources from Southern Illinois University. There, she focused her studies on water resources and conducted flood research as an undergraduate assistant with her advisor. Her interests include nonpoint source pollution and GIS applications for studying water quality. Courtney is earning her MPS to prepare herself for a career in water resources management.
Shannon Booth: M.P.S. student in Environmental Science (Wetland and Water Resource Studies) Shannon recently graduated from the Department of Environmental and Forest Biology here at ESF. With a strong interest in water resources, Shannon is eager to work towards her MPS full time. Former Graduate Students and Post-Doctoral Fellows:
