Dr. Paul Stoy and the Track II Team will give a Rough Cut Talk titled "Track II Update" on Wednesday, Sept. 13, at noon in Barnard Hall room 126.
Dr. Stoy is an Assistant Professor at Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana. He has his Ph.D., 2006, from Duke University; and a B.A. 2001, from University of Wisconsin. Dr. Stoy's area of focus is surface-atmosphere exchange of water, energy, and trace gases with an emphasis on plot scale measurements and regional and global scale synthesis. Specific interests including quantifying the impacts of land use change and climate change on the surface energy balance, the carbon cycle, and hydrology in temperate, boreal, and arctic ecosystems. Recent publications can be found here.
Other members of the Track II team at Montana State University include:
- Dr. Selena Ahmed, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Health & Human Development researching sustainable food and bioenergy systems. Her research, teaching, and outreach interests are at the intersection of the ecological, cultural, and health aspects of food systems with a focus on food security and food environments in health disparate communities. For more information on Dr. Ahmed, please visit here.
- Dr. Jack Brookshire, an Associate Professor of Biogeochemistry and ecosystem analysis in the LRES Department with an emphasis on nutrient cycling and limitation. His interests include: ecosystem response and feedback to atmosphere and climate variation; watershed biogeochemistry; plant-soil interactions; natural abundance isotope analysis; ecosystem modeling; global change. For more information on Dr. Brookshire, please visit here.
- Dr. Julia Haggerty, an Assistant Professor of Geography in the Earth Science Department. Dr. Haggerty’s research focuses on interactions between natural resource use and the social and economic well being of rural communities. Her specific research interests include underserved and tribal communities, metrics and theories of community resilience, participatory research, and longitudinal impact assessment. For more information on Dr. Haggerty, please visit here.
- Dr. Perry Miller, a Professor in the LRES Department investigating the development of diversified cropping systems under water-limited conditions to maintain or improve soil quality, economic returns and sustainable practices. He also researches resource-use-efficiency in no-till and organic systems, spring and winter pulse crop agronomy, annual pea forage and green manure systems, and farming strategies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. For more information on Dr. Miller, please visit here.
- Dr. Brent Peyton, a full Professor on the faculty of the Chemical and Biological Engineering Department, the Director of the Thermal Biology Institute, and in the NSF Center for Biofilm Engineering at Montana State University. His research focus is on extremophilic bioprocessing, in situ biocatalyzed heavy metal biotransformations (Se, Cr, U), and growth of algae and fungi for biodiesel production in natural and engineered biological systems. For more information on Dr. Peyton, please visit here.
- Dr. Lee Spangler, the associate vice president of research at MSU. Dr. Spangler was first employed at MSU as an assistant professor of physical chemistry and later co-founded and directed MSU's Optical Technology Center. Upon moving into the Office of Research, Creativity and Technology Transfer, he began developing research collaborations, such as MSU's High Temperature Electrochemistry Center.
- Suzi Taylor, a member of the outreach team for the WAFERx project. She is assistant director for Outreach and Communications with MSU’s Extended University and is also co-leader of the Montana Girls STEM Collaborative. Taylor has served on the outreach team for Montana’s NSF EPSCoR Track 1 awards as well as other projects funded by NASA, the U.S. Department of Energy and other agencies. She has been instrumental in developing many education/outreach programs for youth and adults, including Climate In My Backyard (CLIMB), Everest Education Expedition and NanoDays/MicroDays. Taylor also developed and teaches Communicating Ecosystem Science, a non-credit program for MSU graduate students.
