Jonathan Doubek recently accepted the position as the next co-chair elect for GLEON’s Graduate Student Association.

Jonathan Doubek enthusiastically accepted the position as the next co-chair elect for GLEON’s Graduate Student Association (GSA), joining GSA chair Facundo Scordo (Universidad Nacional del Sur, Argentina) and co-chair Blaize Denfeld (Uppsala University, Sweden). In this blog post, Jon briefly introduces himself to the GLEON community.

 

Currently, I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Biological Sciences and a fellow in the Interfaces of Global Change at Virginia Tech. Dr. Cayelan Carey, a long-term GLEONite, is my advisor, and she first introduced me to GLEON a few years ago. For my Ph.D. research, I combine field and laboratory research with ecosystem modeling to quantify how multiple environmental and human factors interact to affect plankton ecology and water quality in lakes and reservoirs. Prior to my time at Virginia Tech, I earned my B.S. and M.S. from the University of Michigan in environmental science where my research focused on planktonic food webs in the Great Lakes.

Jonathan Doubek is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Biological Sciences and a fellow in the Interfaces of Global Change at Virginia Tech.

I have been involved in GLEON since G15, attending meetings G15, G16, and G17. I am actively involved on a number of research projects within the zooplankton sub-group of the Terrific Theory Group (TTG) and am a current fellow this cohort’s GLEON Graduate Student Fellowship Program. I strongly value an interdisciplinary approach to scientific research and participating in GLEON meetings and workshops enhances my ability to work professionally with individuals across a variety of academic fields.

As part of the GLEON GSA, I look forward to becoming more connected with and further immersing myself in the GLEON community. I am eager to join the GSA leadership team to bring my experiences and passion for collaborative science to future GLEON meetings.

-Jonathan Doubek
