Science Pub Portland - Mission Theater

The Green Horizon: Can Green Infrastructure Address Runoff & Climate Change Challenges?
with Jennifer Cherrier, PhD, associate professor, Environmental Sciences Institute, Florida A&M University

Description coming soon!

Jennifer is currently an associate professor in the Environmental Sciences Institute at Florida A&M University. She received her Bachelor’s in Biology/Environmental Science at Florida International University in 1989, followed by her Master’s in Biological Oceanography at Florida State University in 1992 and finally her Ph.D. in Biological/Chemical Oceanography from Florida State University in 1997.

Her primary areas of specialization are aquatic biogeochemistry and microbial ecology. Her overall scientific interest as a biogeochemical oceanographer is to better understand how carbon and nitrogen cycling in marine systems impacts estimates of global carbon flux. Her interests lie not only in assessing sources, sinks, and transformations of carbon and nitrogen in time and space but also in assessing those factors that regulate microbial carbon and nitrogen remineralization and assimilation processes. You can find out more about her research here.

Science Pub-Mission Theater is a monthly event open to anyone aged 21+ (or minor with adult). No RSVP or scientific background required. Just bring your curiosity, sense of humor, and appetite for food, drinks, and knowledge!
 
$5.00 suggested cover charge. Tell your friends. We hope to see you there!
