The new semester is underway and it is time to introduce a great batch of folks:
Matt Bromley joins the lab as Master’s student. A Reno native, UNR alum, and decorated Army veteran, Matt is also a research assistant at DRI working on remote sensing and evapotranspiration.
Nicole Shaw is a new Master’s student working on a Great Basin conservation and landscape ecology project in conjunction with Conservation Science Partners. Nicole enjoys family time outdoors and resides in the Lake Tahoe area.
Although he started in summer 2012, Andrew Vitale’s arrival was never trumpeted. Yet, worthy of trumpeting it is. Andrew comes to us with an environmental sciences degree from the University at Albany. His Master’s research involves topoclimates and remote sensing data fusion.
We also welcome our intrepid pika-microclimate field team. Team lead, David Fisher, comes with a freshly minted Master’s in geography from Oregon. Alex Taylor, a recent UNR natural resources graduate, hails from the Central Sierra.
And we bid fond farewell to our undergraduate technician, Sarah Hardage. Sarah completed her Bachelor’s in electrical engineering and now works for the department of defense at an undisclosed location.
