I’m a first year in the community sustainability masters program (I haven’t picked a focus yet). I am leaning towards Great Lakes research, maybe policy, maybe even international water policy. Anything water related. Before graduate school I worked at the Saginaw Bay Environmental Science Institute, and am continuing similar work at the IWR. I am involved in the “Cooling the Hotspots” project, more specifically setting up water quality monitoring in the River Raisin for the purpose of informing farmers and seeing how the data might change their perspectives on adopting best management practices.
