Masters Student (Starting January 2018)
B.Sc. University of Wisconsin at Plateville – 2015
Christin received her BS in biology from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville in May of 2015. Throughout her undergraduate career, she participated in a variety of research projects such as collecting data on Wisconsin bat populations, animal husbandry, and water quality with the Wisconsin DNR. However, her main research projects attempted to find a natural method to inhibit nuisance algae in freshwater lakes. This work inspired her interest in zooplankton, phytoplankton, and water quality. She is particularly interested in invasive species and the effects of climate change on aquatic organisms.
