Prof. Dr. Robinson W. Fulweiler, Boston University Earth & Environment, USA
Wally Fulweiler is a biogeochemist and ecosystems ecologist. She is an Associate Professor in the Department of Earth and Environment and the Department of Biology at Boston University. She will assume the position of Director of the Boston University Marine Program in summer 2016. Her research focuses on answering fundamental questions about energy flow and biogeochemical cycling of nutrients (nitrogen, phosphorus, and silica) carbon, and oxygen in a wide spectrum of environments. Current projects examine the influence of warming water temperature on the nitrogen cycle in estuarine and shelf systems, and how anthropogenic activities alter nutrient cycling along the land–ocean continuum. She was awarded a Sloan Fellowship in 2012, the first time this award was given in Ocean Sciences. In 2013, she was awarded the Cronin award from the Coastal Estuarine Research Federation (CERF). Dr. Fulweiler is an Associate Editor for Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science, Frontiers of Marine Science – Global Change and the Future Ocean, and Journal of Geophysical Research: Biogeosciences. She is a Member-at-Large and Chair of the Publications committee for the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO).
