The 2018 Poster winner is Anna Kottkamp.  Congratulations!  


Anna Kottkamp is a second year Master's student in the MEES program, co-advised by Dr. Margaret Palmer and Dr. Katherine Tully. Anna is a Graduate Research Assistant with the National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center (SESYNC). Her research project focuses on the mechanisms of soil carbon sequestration in seasonal wetlands. In other words: why does carbon stick around in wetlands that aren't always wet? She is broadly interested in the biogeochemistry of terrestrial-aquatic interfaces, the impacts of altered ecosystem function on communities, and science education.
