Lili arrived from the University of Vigo in Spain, where she recently completed her Ph. D. in stream ecology with Dr. Isabel Pardo. A university outreach grant, which provides funding to support students to work abroad for up to 3 months, has brought her to Iceland to do some stream ecology alongside us and explore this beautiful country.
Lili brings with her a broad range of international work experience in both academic and governmental arenas. Her doctoral research focused on detrital energy pathways in stream ecosystems, and the effects of temperature and food quality on detritivore life history. Jointly, she worked in a broad range of aquatic habitats with the European Water Framework Directive a program to develop and integrate water policy and management across the European Union.
We are glad to have Lili aboard and looking forward to working with her over the next months.
