Amy Myrbo

St. Croix Watershed Research Station

Dr. Amy Myrbo is an assistant Scientist at the St. Croix Watershed Research Station. She is also an evaluator, grantwriter and STEM diversity consultant. Her research centers on lake sediment biogeochemistry and sedimentology, and branches out into work with Native American natural resource managers on the histories and present conditions of wild rice lakes, with Watershed Districts and agencies on the “neopaleolimnology” of urban lakes, and with undergraduate student researchers on cores from lakes all over the place. By far her most important work is on broadening participation in the geosciences. In the few hours each week when she’s not working, Amy reads, gardens, and works on her Spanish.
