About the speaker: Silvia Santa Maria Newell is Michigan Sea Grant’s director, based in Ann Arbor at the University of Michigan. A nutrient biogeochemist and microbial ecologist, Silvia’s own research focuses on the effects of excess nutrients from fertilizer and wastewater on inland and coastal waters, particularly harmful algal blooms (HABs) in Lake Erie. Her current collaborative work in the Lake Erie watershed focuses on engaging stakeholders (farmers, managers, and policymakers) to develop realistic pathways for nutrient reduction. She has held many leadership positions, including serving as co-chair of the Great Lakes Commission HABs Collaboratory for two years and her current position as President of the Lake Erie Area Research Network.
In addition to serving as MISG director, Silvia also serves as a professor at the University of Michigan School for Environment and Sustainability.
