Lab welcomes new post-doc, Dr. Kelsey Solomon

We are excited that Dr. Kelsey Solomon has joined the lab as FIU's first George M. Barley Post-doctoral Fellow. Kelsey received her Ph.D. from the Odum School of Ecology at the University of Georgia where she studied effects of urbanization and riparian forest change on stream algal communities. At FIU, Kelsey is leading a new project funded by the National Park Service to explore the benthic algae of Big Cypress National Preserve with an eye toward establishing protective water quality standards as the wetlands there undergo hydrologic restoration.
