Dr. Pedro M. Avellaneda Lopez
Pedro is a post-doc working jointly with Dr. Royer and Dr. Adam Ward. His research uses AgroIBIS, a process-based ecosystem model, to examine the potential of cover crops to affect nutrient loading to surface waters in the Mississippi River basin.
Lienne is a PhD candidate studying nutrient biogeochemistry and stoichiometry between silica, nitrogen, and phosphorus in human-impacted systems to better understand the conditions leading to the formation of harmful algal blooms.
Leah is a master's student interested in studying nutrient cycling in soils as well as streams in agricultural watersheds. After completing the MSES program at O'Neill she hopes to pursue a career as a soil scientist or in another conservation related field.
Liam is an undergraduate working in the Royer Lab through the Cox Research Program. His research interest is road salts in urban streams. Liam will be graduating from O’Neill in spring 2021.
