Graduate Students

 

Jordan Sinclair, PhD 2012

Jordan completed her PhD with Dr. Carl Freeman as her major advisor but also completing work in our lab as part of her dissertation.  Her research examined the effects of inter-annual variability in weather and drought on aspen growth, vigor, and decline in northern Minnesota and on the northern Front Range of Colorado.

 

Jacob Korte, MS 2012

Jacob was a member of our lab as both an undergrad and grad student.  As an undergrad, he completed an undergraduate research project examining spatial patterns of grey squirrel color phases in southeastern Michigan, and was a field assistant in 2008 and 2009.  His MS thesis focused on a landscape assessment of upland sandpiper habitat distribution across Michigan.

Undergraduate Students

 

Jake Dombrowski, Lab Tech

Jake completed his BS degree in Biology fromWayne State in 2013 with heavy interest in ecology.  He spent two years as a lab tech in the aquatic ecology lab at Wayne State.  In our lab, he was part of the 2012 summer field crew that examined impacts on ash health of biocontrol agents introduced into forest stands attacked by the emerald ash borer.  He also assisted Julia Sosin on mapping jack pine regeneration following a wildfire in northern Lower Michigan.  He has since earned his MS in Biology at Florida Atlantic University.

 

 

 

 

 

Stephanie Brown, BS 2012

Stephanie was a field and lab assistant in our lab for three years while she pursued her BS in Environmental Science.  She was a field assistant with Jordan Sinclair in 2011, sampling aspen growth and vigor on the Colorado Front Range.

 

 

 

 

Lisa Cross, BS 2012

Lisa was a field and lab assistant in our lab for three years while she pursued her BS in Environmental Science.  She was a field assistant with Tori Schneider in 2010 and 2011, sampling amphibian communities in southeastern Michigan.

 

 

 

Jen Fugaban, BS 2011

Jen completed a research project in our lab as a Wayne State McNair Scholar in 2011 while pursuing her degree in Environmental Science.  Her research examined the effects of canopy mortality caused by the emerald ash borer on leaf litter decomposiiton in emphemeral ponds in southeastern Michigan. She also assisted Tori Schneider with her amphibian field research in 2010.
