Emily J. Whitney, M.S.
Emily Whitney joined the ACRC in September 2016. She has an MS in fisheries from the University of Alaska Fairbanks, where she examined food webs in glacially-influenced estuaries in Southeast Alaska. Since then, her work has taken her upstream and she now works on projects focused on the biogeochemistry of Southeast Alaska streams and how these systems may respond in response to changes in the watershed. She is frequently in the field collecting water samples or back in the lab processing samples.
Emily enjoys getting out on the trails in Juneau along with her beagle (who you may hear before seeing).
