Gund Graduate Fellow, Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources

Eva graduated from the University of Chicago with a BA in Environmental Studies, where she focused on ecosystem ecology and anthropology. At UVM, she plans to study the connection between biodiversity and ecosystem services. She is particularly interested in how losses of detritivores and decomposers in agricultural fields translate to changes in soil biogeochemistry and, ultimately, crop yield and quality. She plans to approach these questions using field methods, ecosystem modeling, and geospatial analysis.

Areas of Expertise and/or Research
