Professor and Co-director
Dr. Soranno is co-director of the Data-Intensive Landscape Limnology Lab in MSU’s Department of Fisheries and Wildlife. She is a landscape limnologist, that is, a freshwater scientist who studies the multi-scaled spatial and temporal drivers of aquatic chemistry and biology. She is also a macrosystems ecologist and conducts research to develop concepts, approaches, and datasets needed to foster the development of data-intensive approaches in ecology. All of her research is collaborative and most of it is conducted within the Data-Intensive Landscape Limnology Lab. See the following links on this website for: research products including publications, research themes, and primers related to the work that they do in this lab.
At MSU, she teaches Limnology, an upper-division undergraduate course, using a flipped classroom model that emphasizes active learning, case study approaches to teaching science, and student-led discovery. The current syllabus is here. She also teaches undergraduate and graduate seminars in topical areas.
