It's been a whirlwind summer filled with lots of great travel and meeting up with collaborators!
In May, I co-led a workshop at the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis in Santa Barbara, California with Tamara Harms (University of Alaska, Fairbanks) focused on examining the effects of wildfire on stream chemistry in aridland catchments. The group included members of the Collaborative for Research on Aridland Stream Systems from five universities, and we had an incredibly productive week of brainstorming, discussions, and field trips - stay tuned for our forthcoming publications!
In June, I presented my research examining nearshore productivity dynamics in Lake Tahoe at the Aquatic Sciences Meeting in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. I also served as a meeting mentor with the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO) Multicultural Program and helped with a number of events focused on networking, grant writing, and mental health organized by ASLO's Early Career Committee.
In August, I attended the annual Modelscape Consortium collaborators meeting at Flathead Lake Biological Station in Polson, Montana. The meeting was a wonderful opportunity to meet with remote collaborators and make progress on group-wide projects focused on innovative modeling approaches.
I am a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Biology at Duke University.
