Alexandre Magno Anesio is a Professor of Biogeochemistry in the School of Geographical Sciences at the University of Bristol. He is also the Director for the Bristol Glaciology Centre. Anesio gained his PhD in 2000 from Sweden and came to the UK as a Marie Curie postdoctoral fellow in 2003. His research interests are broad, and he combines concepts from Geography, Biology and Chemistry to understand the carbon and nutrient cycle in the cryosphere. In the past 14 years, Anesio has conducted fieldwork in the Arctic, including on the Greenland Ice Sheet and Greenland glaciers (e.g., Kangerlussuaq, Zackenberg, Tassilaq) to demonstrate the impact of microbial processes on a) albedo reduction, b) production, accumulation and export of organic carbon and nutrients to downstream ecosystems and c) the diversity and biogeochemical cycles of subglacial environments. He has secured grants as PI from a variety of sources which includes the UK Research Council (NERC), UK Charities (e.g., Leverhulme Trust, Nuffield Foundation) and the EU (Marie Curie Fellowship and Innovative Training Network). Anesio was elected the 2016 Distinguished Lecturer by the European Geochemistry Association.
Associate Professor of Data Assimilation and Atmospheric Chemistry at the Department of Hydrology and Atmospheric Sciences, University of Arizona (UA). He is also a faculty member of the following UA Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs (GIDP): Remote Sensing and Spatial Analysis and Applied Mathematics.
His research focuses on investigating human fingerprints in the atmosphere. His research combines numerical models and observations to study atmospheric constituents, especially those emitted from combustion-related activities, and how these constituents affect air quality, weather, climate, and our environment.
Dr. Paul Ayayee is an Assistant Professor of Biology within the Department of Biology at the University of Nebraska. His research interests include Insect-gut microbe interactions, Insect physiology and microbial ecology
Professor Teri Balser is Dean of Teaching and Learning for the Faculty of Science and Engineering at Curtin University, where she came after having been Dean of the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences at the University of Florida. She received a Ph.D. in soil microbiology came from the University of California at Berkeley, and she completed postdoctoral research in ecosystem ecology at Stanford University. She is a Fellow of the Soil Science Society of America, and was recently named to the Australian Research Council College of Experts.
Her research centers on understanding microbial community-level ecophysiological responses to stress, disturbance, and change, and the consequences of these for ecosystem functioning. She has worked in countries worldwide studying restoration, carbon sequestration, invasive species, biodiversity, and land use/land cover.
In addition to international recognition as an accomplished research scholar, Dr. Balser is widely known in higher education as a change agent and leader in Science, Technology Engineering and Math education (STEM). She is a co-founder of the Society for Advancement of Biology Education Research (SABER), a National Vision and Change Fellow with the Partnership for Undergraduate Life Sciences Education (PULSE), and was a Fulbright-Nehru Distinguished Chair to India in 2015 to help build capacity at the national level for pedagogically advanced and responsive STEM education.
A Research Physical Scientist, in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's National Exposure Research Laboratory, Computational Exposure Division; Past Physical Scientist in U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Air Resources Laboratory, Atmospheric Sciences Modeling Division.
Research is focused on developing and expanding the capabilities of current air-quality and biogeochemical models to better represent the nitrogen cycle, mercury cycle and atmospheric mercury chemistry, and the coupling of ecosystem and air-quality models.
The overarching goal of my research program is to develop a predictive understanding of microbial ecology and biogeochemistry in the ‘Anthropocene’ sea. My research sits at the interface of microbial ecology, biogeochemistry, and global change science, and I work worldwide in reefs and estuaries, marine lakes and mountain lakes, and the open ocean. I focus on the responses of microbial communities, and the processes mediated by these communities, to environmental change—including climate change, ocean acidification, and ocean deoxygenation.
I received a B.S. from Yale University and a Ph.D. from Stanford in Geological and Environmental Sciences; before joining the UC Merced faculty in 2009, where I was a postdoc in Marine Environmental Biology at USC, a lecturer at UCLA, and an Assistant Researcher at the University of Hawai’i. I am an Associate Professor and member of the Sierra Nevada Research Institute and the Environmental Systems and Quantitative and Systems Biology graduate groups.
Research scientist in the Environmental Sciences Division at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Chief Scientist of the ORNL Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC) since 2016. The ORNL DAAC provides data management, curation, and data disimmenation for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Terrestrial Ecology Program.
Joint Faculty Assistant Professor in the Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
General research interests: global change ecology, biogeography, and biodiversity. Her research uses remote sensing data, machine learning, and other data science tools to understand the past and present interactions between human societies and ecological communities.
I study the effects of anthropogenic activities on the cycling of chemical elements in ecosystems. My particular area of interest is on the biogeochemical and hydrological processes that control the cycling of mercury, nitrogen, carbon, and sulfur at the watershed scale. A recent focus is the effects of climate change on streamflow with an emphasis on high flows and implications for water quality.
I am currently an assistant professor in both the School of Environmental and Forest Science and Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of Washington since the fall of 2014. I was hired as part of the Freshwater Initiative here at UW.
I received my PhD in Forestry and Environmental Studies from Yale University (2011), a masters in Environmental Science from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, and a B.A. in Economics and Environmental Studies from Connecticut College.
I came to the University of Washington from the U.S. Geological Survey and Yale University where I was a postdoctoral associate involved in a national assessment of carbon sequestration potential within natural ecosystems focusing on aquatic environments.
My focus is on freshwater environments and I study the influence of humans and climate on carbon cycling at the intersection of terrestrial and aquatic systems.
