Kathryn Cottingham - "Cyanobacterial blooms in low nutrient lakes: things we’re learning from blooms happening in unexpected places"

March 22nd
1:30 - 2:20p.m.
College of Natural Resources Room 10

Dr. Kathryn L. Cottingham is a professor of biological sciences at Dartmouth College with broad interests in ecology and its applications to environmental health. Kathy did her undergraduate work in biology and mathematics at Drew University and earned M.S. and Ph.D. degrees at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. She then joined the first cohort of postdoctoral fellows at National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis before moving to Dartmouth and climbing through the ranks from assistant to associate to full professor. Her current research projects are focused on the causes and consequences of cyanobacterial blooms in low-nutrient, clear-water lakes, but the broader research portfolio in her lab also includes studies of brook trout spawning behavior and the effects of contaminants on individual organisms as well as community and ecosystem processes. In 2015, Kathy was named the Dartmouth Professor of Arts and Sciences and a Fellow of the Ecological Society of America, as well as chair of her department. She is currently serving as a rotating Program Director in the Division of Environmental Biology at the National Science Foundation.
