Veronica Albrecht

Veronica Albrecht is currently a student at Eastern Washington University majoring in biology. She has previously worked in Dr. Joyner-Matos' on how an invasive species of fish (Brook stickleback) was impacting the habitat quality of the ponds at Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge. Additionally, in Dr. Joyner Matos lab she has assisted on a project looking at how heavy metal pollution in the Idaho chain lakes affects the freshwater invertebrates. Most recently with the aid of her mentor she has been working on a project of her own analyzing how rain events impact fecal coliform levels in a storm drain fed pond. With this project, she has reported her findings at three conferences; the National Conference of Undergraduate Research (NCUR) 2017, the West Coast Biological Sciences Undergraduate Research Conference (WCBSURC) 2017, and the EWU symposium 2017. She is expected to graduate in spring 2018 and plans to continue focusing on research into pathogenic microorganisms by pursuing a Ph.D. in microbiology.
