Making Waves: Dr. Erin Hotchkiss

Making Waves is the podcast of the Society for Freshwater Science

Ep. 26: Carbon Fates, Dr. Erin Hotchkiss

Erin Hotchkiss

This month's podcast features 2017 Hynes Award winner Dr. Erin Hotchkiss discussing her work on the fate of carbon in aquatic ecosystems.

Dr. Erin Hotchkiss is an ecosystem ecologist who uses empirical data and statistical models to understand how land-water interactions and ecosystem processes shape the transport, transformation, and fate of carbon and nutrients in freshwater ecosystems. She uses a combination of monitoring (chemistry, hydrology, biology), experimental (manipulating carbon and nutrients, stable isotope tracers), and quantitative (Bayesian, inverse modeling) approaches to study freshwater ecosystem processes. Erin is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biological Sciences at Virginia Tech, where she is also a member of the "Stream Team" and a faculty affiliate of the Global Change Center.
