Jon Doubek, a PH.D. student in Biological Sciences and a fellow in the Interfaces of Global Change Program, has been invited to be a Global Lake Ecological Observatory Network (GLEON) Fellow! He will be part of their second cohort of students starting in early 2015.

Jon Doubek
Jon is a Ph.D. student in the Department of Biological Sciences at Virginia Tech. His primary research focus is quantifying how multiple stressors (e.g. land use changes, climate change, invasive species and nutrient loading) affect lake planktonic communities, which have resulting consequences for lake water quality and human use.

The GLEON Fellowship Program trains small cohorts of graduate students from around the world to analyze large and diverse data sets, operate effectively in diverse international teams, and communicate science to researchers, the public, and managers. As a GLEON Fellow, Jon will take part in three international workshops over the next 1.5 years while completing an interdisciplinary, collaborative scientific project.

Congratulations, Jon!
