Ecohydrology group MSc student Heather Townsend successfully defended her thesis on January 21, 2021 in a virtual defence. Heather's thesis is titled "Environmental sensitivities of coupled biogeochemical cycles in anoxic conditions: from soil batch experiments to a bioenergetics approach." Her research was funded by an NSERC Strategic Partnership Grant to study coupled biogeochemical dynamics across scales with additional support from Global Water Futures. Heather was supervised by Drs. Fereidoun Rezanezhad and Philippe Van Cappellen (both from Earth and Environmental Sciences), and the committee included Drs. Merrin Macrae (Geography and Environmental Management), Scott Smith (Wilfrid Laurier University) and Thai Phan (Earth and Environmental Sciences).
