Megan Vahsen

I received my B.S. in Biology at the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA this past spring and soon hopped in my car to drive across the country to Colorado. Although I grew up mostly on the East Coast, summer research experiences at the University of Nevada, Reno and the University of Texas at El Paso made me fall in love with the western landscape and the plant communities that reside there. I am joining GDPE as a Master's student in Ruth Hufbauer's lab studying the invasive dynamics of cheatgrass.
