Katherine Johnson Research Scientist

Katherine (Katie) received a Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy from the University of Georgia, and a Master’s degree in Ecology from the University of the French West Indies and Guiana. Past research included: assessing anthropogenic impacts of endangered endemic species, White-breasted Thrasher (Ramphocinclus brachyurus brachyurus), territories, modeling tropical tree growth and survivorship across different reforestation regimes, evaluating carbon sequestration in tropical soils and above ground biomass in areas of regeneration, and using allometry to quantify tree reiteration. Current research involves investigating benthic diatom assemblages in Savannah River oxbows and constructed wetlands to evaluate water quality and levels of eutrophication. Other interests include Conservation Ecology.
