Amy has accepted a position as an assistant professor at Michigan Technological University.  Congratulations Amy! (Sep 2009) Dr. Marcarelli's research areas are: aquatic ecology, ecosystem and community ecology of streams and rivers, biogeochemistry.

Amy completed a position as a Post-doctoral researcher in the Department of Biological Sciences at Idaho State University. She worked on an NSF EPSCoR project examining coupled carbon and nitrogen cycling in the Portneuf River in southern Idaho. A major focus of the project was to examine how human development, including changes in land use, disturbance, and agricultural and industrial activities, modify the flux of carbon and nitrogen, and in turn alter ecosystem processes within the river.
