Earth & Environment Ph.D. Candidate Hollie Emery has just been award funding from the National Science Foundation under their Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grants (DDIG) program.

With the grant, Emery will continue to work on research related to her dissertation. In her proposal to seek DDIG funding, Emery writes, “This project will expand my ongoing research into the effects of precipitation┬áchange on salt marsh greenhouse gas emissions. DDIG funding will enable me to closely examine changes in the taxonomic diversity and functional gene expression of the microbial community responsible for trace greenhouse gas production and consumption. This approach will connect ecosystem scale gas flux measurements with microbial ecology.”
