We are excited to welcome Kait Farrell as a new postdoc in the Carey Lab starting in May 2017. Kait is currently finishing up her dissertation in Dr. Amy Rosemond’s lab at the University of Georgia. Kait is a freshwater ecologist interested in linking measurements of ecosystem rates made at different spatial scales, as well as the roles that animals, from macroinvertebrates to humans, play in mediating ecosystem processes in streams, rivers, and lakes. To read more about her work, check out her website here or follow her on twitter here.
In the Carey Lab, Kait will be modeling ecological processes in GLEON lakes and reservoirs as part of the CNH-Lakes project, as well as helping out with the local reservoir work and Project EDDIE module development. We can’t wait for her to get here!
