Anne Lightbody

Anne Lightbody is an associate professor and graduate program coordinator in the Department of Earth Sciences at the University of New Hampshire (UNH). Her research focuses on flow and transport within surface water systems, including rivers, streams, lakes, fresh-water wetlands, and salt-water marshes. She is particularly interested in coupling improved understanding of small-scale physical processes to larger scale modeling and prediction. This work is fundamental yet also has clear applications, reaching into real-world management issues including stream restoration, constructed treatment wetland design, aquaculture, and suspended sediment pollution control. Dr. Lightbody encouraged Hannah to apply for a Research Experience and Apprenticeship Program (REAP) grant and served as her research mentor during the summer of 2019.
