Former EEB postdoctoral fellow, Kenneth Elgersma, began a tenure-track position at the University of Northern Iowa in the fall of 2013. Elgersma is teaching biostatistics and an introductory biology lab.
“I’m excited to do more teaching because of how much I enjoyed teaching as a graduate student and as a postdoc at U-M,” Elgersma said. “I've also really enjoyed my time at the Biological Station while I've been here, it has great infrastructure for conducting research, so I'm exploring ways to continue and expand my research there as I start my new position in Iowa.”
He is planning to spend time this summer beginning his research on natural greenhouse gas emissions from wetlands and adjacent grasslands and agricultural fields in Iowa, and how that changes when non-native plants invade.
Elgersma’s mentor at U-M was Professor Deborah Goldberg.
