Erin Overholt is our lab manager and she comes to us with multiple talents after receiving two Master's degrees at Miami University,
one in Zoology and the other in life science education. She participates in the lab's ongoing research ranging from the laboratory at Miami
University to field research in Ohio reservoirs, Pocono lakes in Pennsylvania, and to alpine systems throughout the country and beyond. Specific research projects
have included the sensitivity of parasites to UV and the subsequent effects on lake epidemics as well as UV attraction and avoidance in calanoid copepods.
