Katelyn King, PhD (2016-2021)
Katelyn’s interested in the surface connections between lakes, streams, and wetlands. Specifically, she is studying how these connections affect freshwater ecosystem state and health patterns over large spatial scales. Prior to starting at MSU, Katelyn worked for 4 years as a Bioprocessing Engineer for a pharmaceutical company in Virginia. She worked on large scale cellular fermentation, recovery of cellular proteins, and protein purification through chromatography. She received her B.S. in Biology from the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, VA. She performed undergraduate research in the Rappahannock River, studying fish species richness and recovery of the American Shad population after re-stocking efforts. Current position: Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the School for the Environment & Sustainability at the University of Michigan.
Jemma Stachelek, PhD (2016-2020)
Jem’s background is in coastal marine ecology with a particular focus on salt marsh, mangrove, and seagrass ecosystems. To date, their research has focused on the application of data-intensive computation and modelling to inform water resources management in Texas and Florida. To that end, they have developed a number of software tools and R packages to facilitate high-throughput access to environmental databases. Their research at MSU was a continuation of some of these themes with a specific focus on examining the nature of landscape features and the extent to which they are related to lake properties across a variety of spatial scales. They enjoy teaching programming through their involvement in the Software Carpentry and Data Carpentry organizations. In particular, they serve as a maintainer for the Data Carpentry GIS-with-R lesson materials. Current position: Researcher in the Earth System Observations group at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
Nick Skaff, PhD (2013-2018)
Nick’s research evaluated how the composition and configuration of aquatic habitats influence broad-scale mosquito-borne disease transmission. He also worked with two large collaborative research groups, GLEON and CSI Limnology, to determine the ways in which climate, and terrestrial and aquatic landscape structure influence the chemical and biological properties of lakes at regional and continental scales. Current position: Fellow with the CDC Environmental Public Health Tracking Program (EPHTP) and an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Michigan State University
