Natural Resources: General

Advisor: Dr. David Burdick

Research Topic: Salt marsh resilience to sea level rise

I am studying the mechanisms of below-ground plant growth and sediment deposition that historically have allowed marshes to maintain elevation relative to sea level.  I aim to better understand the effects of sea level rise on marsh habitat loss and to aid in restoration strategies.
