ACER would like to welcome our newest post-doctoral researcher, Dr. Corianne Tatariw.
Dr. Tatariw joined the Nitrogen Cycling group, lead by Dr. Behzad Mortazavi, in September and has hit the ground running. During her time with ACER she will be investigating the impact of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill on nitrogen cycling in the Chandeleur Islands. With a B.S. from Virginia Tech, M.S. at the University of Alabama, and Ph.D. from the University of Maine her research focus is on microbial biogeochemistry. Her previous research includes:
Originally from Herndon, Virginia, Dr. Tatariw said her love of water started at a young age. “I used to spend my after-school time playing at the creek by my parents’ house, and would come home covered in mud, to my mother’s annoyance. I could see how land use change in the area was causing the creek to change, and by the time I went to college I knew I wanted to work in a field that focused on water quality improvement and protection.”
ACER welcomes Dr. Tatariw.
