Monthly Mentor Spotlight
Our December 2017 “Mentor in the Spotlight” is Ruth Heindel. Ruth is currently a postdoc at the Institute for Arctic & Alpine Research at the University of Colorado Boulder. Ruth’s research centers on better understanding the wind-driven processes (soil erosion and dust deposition) and nutrient cycling (how nitrogen and phosphorus move through ecosystems) between the cold regions and other regions of our planet. She is an avid cello and mandolin player, and enjoys hiking, running, cooking, and reading as many books as possible.
Please email Ilana if you would like to get in contact with Ruth!
