This is me. My research interests are described on other pages linked to here, and at http://www.queensu.ca/biology/people/faculty/grogan.html
   

Yvette Chirinian is our lab technician, and joined us in November 2011.

 

   

Casper Christiansen is a Ph.D. thesis student who started in September 2011.

"My primary research interests are rooted within arctic ecosystem ecology. What drives litter decomposition on the tundra, how do biogeochemical properties fluctuate with season and soil depth, and how will these characteristics influence ecosystem responses to a changing climate?"

Casper was awarded an Ontario Trillium International Student Scholarship from the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities for the years 2011-2015.

Casper was awarded a Dean's doctoral travel grant from Queen's in April 2014.

Alexandra Djorjevic is an M.Sc. thesis student who started in September 2011.

"My research focuses on the relationship between deer browsing and forest regeneration in the Eastern Ontario region. The ultimate goal of my research is to investigate the feedback mechanisms that come as a result of the deer-induced changes to individual plants and plant communities, looking for evidence of the potential community shift towards an alternate stable state."


Veronika Wright is an M.Sc. thesis student who started in September 2013.

Preliminary thesis title: Temperature and snowmelt water dynamics during thaw in the low Arctic: their impact on soil microbial communities and nutrient availability.

Veronika was awarded an NSERC M.Sc. scholarship in April 2014, and a R. Samuel McLaughlin Fellowship to support her graduate studies in September 2013.


Emma Hill is an undergraduate honours thesis student who starts in May 2014.

She is currently developing her arctic tundra research ideas.

 


Sean Doherty is an undergraduate honours thesis student cosupervised by the Grogan and Walker labs who starts in May 2014.

He is currently developing his arctic tundra research ideas.

Sean was awarded an NSERC USRA scholarship for summer lab/field training in April 2014, and a Queen's Leadership award.


Jordan Constant is an undergraduate honours thesis student who starts in May 2014.

He is currently developing his research ideas.


Sanna Masud is an undergraduate research mentorship (BIOL 538) student who starts in September 2014.

She will be following up on plant and soil micronutrient research by past Ph.D. student Tara Zamin.
