Dina LiebowitzPh.D. Candidate in Interdisciplinary Ecology
University of FloridaGainesville, FL
I am a Ph.D. candidate in the School of Natural Resources and the Environment at the University of Florida. My research focus is on aquatic ecology, exploring the interacting roles of invertebrate consumers and environmental parameters in controlling algal blooms in Florida's freshwater springs.
Before coming to UF, I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a B.S. in Biology and Environmental Studies and a thesis exploring land-use and fire patterns in Bolivia. After spending a year volunteering with human rights and environmental NGOs in Israel, I worked as a field biology coordinator for Harvard University's Department of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology. In 2007, I finished an M.S. in Wildlife Ecology and Conservation from the University of Florida, focusing on marine resource use patterns and local stakeholder attitudes towards marine protected areas in the Bahamas. During that time, I also had the opportunity to spend 5 weeks on an NSF funded Pacific Islands field training course exploring community based natural resource management in the Solomon Islands.
The Adaptive Management IGERT program's interdisciplinary focus has allowed me to merge my interests in community natural resource management and ecology.
