I've become fascinated by video as a great tool for communicating my own science research and that of others. It's a tool that I'm still getting acquainted with, but here's what I've been working on so far.
Road Ditch Research Update
This video summarizes some of my PhD research on nutrient cycling and water quality impacts of grassed road ditches in a suburban watershed. This video was created for the New York Water Resources Institute, which funded some of this research.
Road Salt Research Update
This video provides a summary of road salt-related research going on in the Cornell Soil & Water Lab, where I'm doing my PhD. The video primarily focuses on an undergraduate project that I've helped advise, where students are monitoring salt outputs from stormwater outfalls on Cornell's campus. The video was featured in an article on our lab's road salt research by the Cornell Chronicle
Urban Water Detectives
This video provides a very general perspective on my PhD research, which focuses on stormwater management in suburban landscapes. It was made as part of a video workshop & competition sponsored by Cornell's Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future
From Microbes to Landscapes: Improving Greenhouse Gas Models
This video showcases interdisciplinary research for our NSF IGERT program focused on bridging the gap between scientists working at different scales within the environment.
It was created as part of an NSF-sponsored video contest for all IGERT programs, where it won a 'Judge's Choice' award
