Welcome! This is the professional site of Lauren Kuehne. I’m an ecologist who studies human impacts on aquatic systems, with the goal of contributing to long-term sustainability of natural resources. I focus on freshwater ecosystems since freshwater is something that everyone uses – remember elementary school? The human body is 60% water!
I’m interested in making sure that the environmental resources we use and enjoy are available for future generations, so not only do I spend my time doing science in the Pacific Northwest, but also work to communicate and educate people about my own and others’ research. On this site, you’ll find information about my scientific background and research. You’ll also find highlights from outreach endeavors, and my semi-monthly blog, which includes updates on my research, freshwater policy news, and the odd musing on society and the environment.
Thanks for visiting – and hope you enjoy the site! If you like the content, you can follow my blog (look to your right) to receive notification of new posts via email, or use the link buttons to share the site or individual posts with friends and colleagues.
