Postdoctoral Associate, Gund Institute for Environment

Nitin Singh's research focuses on understanding the influence of global change and catchment characteristic on water quantity and quality of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. He recently completed his PhD in catchment hydrology and biogeochemistry under supervision of Dr. Ryan Emanuel at North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC. His dissertation is titled Hydrological and biogeochemical processes in forested headwater catchments of the Southern Appalachians. Before starting his PhD work, Nitin worked as a hydrologist with World Wildlife Fund on a Pay for Environmental Service program in the Everglades Agricultural Area. His research interests include catchment hydrology, biogeochemistry, ecosystem services, land-atmospheric interactions and environmental education.

Currently, he is investigating the role of conservation and restoration of forests and wetlands in mediating water quality issues of Lake Champlain.
