Assistant Professor of Biology
New Video -
Meet Lynn through an informal four question interview now posted on You Tube.
- 2005, Ph.D., Molecular and Environmental Toxicology, University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Thesis: Sulfur XANES Studies of Hg(II) Interactions with Sulfur in Biological Compounds and Microorganisms. Advisor: William Bleam.
- 1999, B.A., Environmental Science, Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, NY.
Senior thesis studied the fate and transport of polychlorinated biphenyls in the environment.
For my graduate work I studied the fate and transport of heavy metals in the environment. Specifically I was interested in exploring the binding of metals to soil organic material and interactions with microbes in the soil. I am also interested in exploring the interface between art and science. I do this in collaboration with Jordan Acker Anderson of the Art Department at Mount Mary College. I also do outreach for the Chemical Education Digital Library, helping others to use the electronic resources in their classes.
