Postdoctoral Fellow

Dr. Cassie Gurbisz is an Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies at St. Mary’s College of Maryland. Her research focuses on coastal ecosystem ecology. While at SESYNC, Cassie studied landscape-scale wetland dynamics. More recently, she has investigated interactions between submerged aquatic vegetation (SAV) and oyster aquaculture and the role of SAV in modulating estuarine nutrient dynamics. As a faculty member of a primarily undergraduate institution, she also spends a significant portion of her time teaching. Her courses include Introduction to Environmental Studies, Introduction to Environmental Science, Field Research Methods, Quantitative Methods, and Coastal Ecosystem Management. Cassie earned a PhD in Marine, Estuarine, and Environmental Science at University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science and a BS in Environmental Science and Studio Art at Dickinson College.
