Speaker Series in Ecology and Natural Resources - Dr. Lindsey Albertson, Montana State University

Seminar title:  Critical roles of animals in shaping their physical environment: Investigating ecosystem engineering and facilitation using meta-analysis and aquatic invertebrates


Lindsey received her Bachelor of Science degree in Geology-Biology from Brown University in Rhode Island. She worked as a research technician at the University of Florida before starting graduate school at the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) in the Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology Department. After receiving her Ph.D. from UCSB in 2013, she held a Postdoc position at the Stroud Water Research Center, a non-profit research and educational institute in Pennsylvania. In 2015, she started as an Assistant Professor at Montana State University in Bozeman Montana, where she has a research lab that studies interactions and feedbacks between geomorphology, hydrology, and freshwater organisms, with a focus on invertebrate ecosystem engineers such as silk-spinning caddisflies and crayfish. She studies a variety of freshwater ecosystems in the Rocky Mountain West, including Yellowstone Lake in Yellowstone National Park, the Madison River, which supports an iconic blue-ribbon trout fishery, and headwater streams at 10,000 feet elevation in Colorado.
