In this episode, we have the opportunity to speak with Dr. Janice Brahney, an accomplished environmental researcher. Dr. Brahney is an assistant professor at Utah State University’s Watershed Sciences department. She joins us today to discuss her work with watersheds, integrated biological systems, and the issue of microplastics.
Dr. Brahney has always been fascinated by freshwater ecology, and this interest expanded into researching the impact air quality has on water quality. Through this work, she has developed three major themes in her research: understanding what is being transported through the atmosphere to remote ecosystems, understanding how the recession of glaciers is affecting freshwater systems, and the cause, effect, and mitigation of water quality impairment.
