Join us over the lunch hour for a talk from Dr. Janice Brahney titled “Why is it raining plastics?” on Wednesday, April 13.

Brahney is an associate professor at Utah State University. She received her doctorate in environmental biogeochemistry from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and holds a master’s degree in earth science and a bachelor’s degree in environmental science, both from Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, Canada.

Her research sits at the intersection of several critical zone disciplines and includes three primary themes:

1. The atmosphere as a vector for material transport to aquatic ecosystems,

2. Climate change effects in mountain environments, and
3. The cause, effect, and mitigation of water quality impairment.

Much of Brahney’s work has produced results with far-reaching implications for policy, land-use regulation, and ecosystem monitoring.
