IMG_1168_cropWelcome! 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 they are so closely intertwined in the everyday lives of people; healthy lakes and rivers are a resource we desperately need but often take for granted.

My commitment to promoting sustainability of environmental resources means that I not only spend my time doing science, but also working to have research support conservation and policy by collaborating with state and federal agencies, tribes, and NGOs. On this site, you’ll find information about my scientific background and research. You’ll also find highlights from outreach endeavors, and my 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!  You can contact me with any questions about my research or this site at
