Sarah RoleyGLOBES IGERT
University of Notre DameNotre Dame, IN
Sarah holds Bachelor's degrees in Biology and English from Bemidji State University and a Master’s degree in Conservation Biology from the University of Minnesota. Her research experiences have included studies of Eurasian watermilfoil invasions in Minnesota, curlyleaf pondweed viability and longevity, the milfoil weevil’s performance on various milfoil taxa, aquatic macroinvertebrate communities in river-lake systems, and prairie plant invasions.
Most recently, Sarah worked at Capitol Region Watershed District in St. Paul. In this urban watershed, she monitored water quality, including the effectiveness of best management practices and the biological health of wetlands. She also worked with District residents to install water quality improvement practices on their property.
Sarah is excited to return to research, especially as a part of GLOBES. Her work with invasive species and urban water quality have taught her the importance of integrating science and public policy. At Notre Dame, she will continue to work in human-altered landscapes by studying agricultural streams. When not wading through streams and wetlands, Sarah enjoys running long-distance races, reading novels, growing vegetables, and any outdoor activity.
