Christine joined SESYNC's team as a Graduate Research Assistant in 2015 and as of September 2017, she expanded her role and responsibilities as a Research Support Assistant. As a Graduate Research Assistant, she contributed to the organization of SESYNC's 2015-2016 Immersion Program and helped produced the three-part "Introduction to Socio-Environmental Synthesis" video series. She is currently working with the Conference Planning Team to organize SESYNC's first international symposium, Boundary Spanning: Advances in Socio-Environmental Systems Research. This symposium will bring together 200 scholars to discuss the current state, recent advances, and future opportunities in the field of socio-environmental systems research. This event will also provide the opportunity for emerging scholars and leaders to form new socio-environmental synthesis networks.
Christine received her Ph.D. in Environmental Science and Technology from the University of Maryland in 2017. As a soil microbial ecologist, she is interested in examining the effects of environmental perturbations on microbial ecology and carbon biogeochemistry in wetland soils. She continues to explore her academic interest in soil methane cycling and greenhouse gas emissions as a postdoctoral fellow in Dr. Palmer's Research Lab.
