Columbia River Calling

Student Research

About the Blog Series

One thing that I’ve loved about blogging and attending various conferences in the Columbia River Basin is that through them, I’ve met a lot of great students conducting research in the basin on a wide variety of topics related to the Columbia River.  I want to get the word out about these future basin leaders and their research projects so I decided to start a new blog series devoted to sharing student research and promoting the student researchers.

Call for Submissions

If you are interested in promoting your research on my blog, please fill out this Google Form.   Why should you fill out the form?  Professional web presence is often cited as important to potential employers (yep, your future boss is going to Google you), and therefore it is a good idea to share your work on the web.  I’m offering you a platform to do just that.
