Steve wins WRRC Graduate Research Award

Congrats to Steve DeVilbiss, a PhD candidate in the lab, who was just awarded a $5k graduate research grant from the VA Water Resources Research Center. Steve’s award, titled “”Impacts of freshwater salinization on primary production and stream ecosystem metabolism” will support his investigation of how salt inputs impact photosynthesis in freshwater streams. This is an exciting addition to complement his previous work looking at salt impacts on respiration and will allow him to consider the full ecosystem balance. Well done Steve, and thanks to the WRRC for the support!
