Sunset Over New York City

Amy Burgin, Associate Professor and Associate Scientist, University of Kansas and Kansas Biological Survey, surveying the South Fork of Kings Creek at Konza Prairie (Kansas, USA) where she works with a team of scientists - including microbiologists, hydrologists, and biogeochemists - to understand how stream intermittency (periods of no-flow) affects water quality. Amy participates in Science-A-Thon to help encourage others, especially undergraduates, to consider careers in science by showing them behind-the-scenes activities and share mentoring advice.
