Welcome to envirobites! Starting Wednesday August 2, 2017 we will start publishing short posts about the latest environmental science studies roughly 3 timer per week. The writers for envirobites are science professionals that take pride in their work and want to share their interests with you. We hope to cover a breadth of topics anything from Climate Change, to Arctic Pollution, Public Health, and Science in Cities. If there is something you think we are missing, please reach out to us. If you want to get involved and write for envirobites, please get in touch here.

- Urban Environmental Science – why is it important and what is the big deal? →
I earned my PhD from the University of Rhode Island in Environmental Science with a focus on Hydrology in 2014. I study the urban environment - anything from soil hydrology, green infrastructure, soil black carbon inventories, to public health in terms of mosquito abundance and urban morphology. Now I work at the science-policy-education interface where I'm building a PhD program at Boston University that focuses on biogeoscience and environmental health in cities. Aside from the sciency stuff I enjoy torturing myself on long bike rides, playing volleyball or tennis, riding horses, making anything edible (I miss the lab work), or playing cards.
