Brian, Tom, and AP search through the productive (and often spikey and ticky) coastal wetland to find hidden PVC installed for greenhouse gas sampling. SCIENCE!
Allison did an AWESOME job presenting her summer project! It was such a fun summer working together!
Peralta labbies helping labbies - such a supportive and thoughtful practice session to help Allison get ready for the NSURP talk.
Daniya and Aied presented posters during live sessions at the conference and special poster session with the Microbial Ecology Section!
AP presents INSPIRE talk and co-leads sessions on microbial community coalescence. Fun was had by all!
After a busy year of mostly remote work, we're gearing up for more F2F field and lab adventures. Thank you to Water Resources Center researchers John, De'Monnie, and C.J. for keeping field and lab work going at Town Creek and the West Research Campus.
Former undergraduate researchers Alexia, Diego, Ivanellis, and Lulu have accepted positions for post-grad studies.
Congrats to Aied Garcia for being awarded a grant from the Water Resources Center Water Scholars Program! The project is entitled "Bringing Awareness to the Research and Volunteer Opportunities at the Water Resources Center".
Congrats to Daniya Stephens for receiving ECU Biology Next Step Scholarship!
AP receives ECU 5-Year Research Achievement Award. Read more.
De'Monnie is taking lead on microbiome analysis of the urban stormwater control structure at Town Creek (Greenville, NC). This project serves as the research focus of a multi-disciplinary course-based undergraduate research experience. De'Monnie is also a Water Resources Center undergraduate researcher!
