Major Advisor: Kendra Spence Cheruvelil
Biography: Kendra is from Virginia, where she had been working as a Bioprocessing Engineer for a pharmaceutical company for the last 4 years. Throughout her undergraduate study she was interested in aquatic ecology, so the move to Michigan and the Limnology Lab was a natural fit. Michigan is not completely foreign, as her husband was born in Michigan so they have family nearby. She is interested in studying connectivity of wetland, river, and lake ecosystems.
