Rigorous quantitative and qualitative research is an important component of academic learning in Environmental Studies. This independent learning opportunity is designed to allow advanced students to delve into real-world research with faculty who are currently engaged in specific projects. The program will help students develop vital skills in research design, data acquisition and interpretation, written and oral communication, collaboration, and critical thinking skills—all of which are of particular value for students who are pursuing a graduate degree, as well as for graduates who are already in the job market.

Dylan Fischer  studies plant ecosystem ecology, carbon dynamics, and nutrient cycling in forests of western Washington and the Southwest. This work includes image analysis of tree roots, molecular genetics, plant physiology, carbon balance, nitrogen cycling, species interactions, community analysis, and restoration ecology. He also manages the EEON project (  blogs.evergreen.edu/eeon/  ). See more about his lab's work at   blogs.evergreen.edu/ecology  . Students in this program work closely with ongoing research in the lab, participate in weekly lab meetings, and develop their own research projects.
