Arielle Link (she/her)
Credentials: PhD - Turner Lab
I study how changing forest disturbance regimes impact ecosystem function and nutrient cycling across spatial and temporal scales in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. As wildfire increases in frequency and severity throughout the west, it is increasingly important to understand how converging drivers of change will affect post-fire regeneration and forest resilience. I am also passionate about advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the field of ecology.
Why did you decide to pursue a graduate degree in iBio?
I wanted to expand my skills as a researcher and spend more time in my favorite ecosystem (subalpine lodgepole pine forests).
Why or what do you love about the program?
The collaborative and non-competitive rapport among students.
Fun Fact: I used to be a snowboard instructor and I read 100+ novels a year
