During that project, she studied parameters including water quality and the phytoplankton community. Now she is pursuing a Master’s degree to then move forward to get her Ph.D. in Ecology and Environmental Science.
Simona currently works with Dr. Jasmine Saros studying Maine lakes. Her main research interest is how nutrients such as Nitrogen and Phosphorus affect lakes in the Maine area.
