In June, the W.K. Kellogg Biological Station welcomed—from an appropriate distance!—a new researcher to our community.
Dr. Samantha Mosier has joined the Robertson Lab as a postdoctoral research associate. Originally from Holland, Michigan, she comes to KBS from Colorado State University, where she earned a Ph.D. in ecology. She also holds a B.S. in environmental science from the University of Michigan and a M.S. in applied ecology from Michigan Tech University.
Mosier’s research interests include soil organic matter dynamics and biogeochemical cycling. She adds, “I’m passionate about sustainable land management practices as climate change mitigation strategies.”
Though she arrived at KBS in the midst of a global pandemic, during a summer when many summer programs were canceled, Mosier looks forward to summers to come.
“I am loving the peace and quiet here, but I am even more excited to see this place hopping with undergraduate researchers,” she says. “I am looking forward to working with them and their inspiring and bright ideas!”
Welcome, Samantha. We’re so glad you’re here!
