Ecology and Ecosystems

Degree Sought: MS
Advisor(s): Yanai

Undergraduate Study: Pennsylvania State University - University Park (Animal Sciences/conc)

Personal Statement
After receiving my agriculture-focused BS I'm excited to be working with data that substantiates how our current society's practices impact the ecosystems we live around. During my undergraduate I participated in a study that examined foliar nitrogen manipulations and the potential for plants to trap emissions (NH4, dust, and particulate matter) from poultry farms. My current focus with nutrient manipulation continues in northern hardwood ecosystems within the White Mountains of New Hampshire; I am analyzing leaf area and foliar nutrient composition along with assisting in projects involving root biomass and production and leaf litter production and chemistry.

Graduate Research Topic
Currently, looking at specific leaf area and foliar chemistry of Pin Cherry and Beech trees in nutrient manipulated plots of N, P, and N+P additions.

Favorite Hobbies
Moth and insect ID, Birding, backpacking, cycling, travel, xc skiing.

Personal Statement
My research interests are in supply chains within saw mills, sustainability, continuous improvement,purchasing and project management. Right now the biggest driver of my research activities is the pursuit of my doctoral degree. I also want to be able to publish articles that will benefit society and help change the world in a positive manner. This past year I published my first peer reviewed article with Dr. Germain. Iím in the process working on my dissertation while finishing my course work and working full time.

Graduate Research Topic
Sawmill Supply Chains
