Woods, fields, lakes, and rivers are excellent schoolmasters, and teach some of us more than we can ever learn from books – John Lubbock


Growing up on a lake with frequent harmful algal blooms, I have long been interested in algae and water quality. Working with Drs. Kevin Wyatt and Allison Rober at Ball State University, I began studying environmental controls on harmful algal blooms, and continued working with them for my M.S. degree, analyzing temperature controls on cyanobacterial toxin release. Since being shown the world of diatoms, I’ve become interested in using diatoms as bioindicators as well as resource competition among algal groups.
