Matthew Vaughan is a PhD student at the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources. He is currently working to deploy an array of sensors throughout northern Vermont that will record high-resolution river water quality data. The monitoring locations target areas with varied land uses, so that the NEWRnet team can learn more about water quality response and nutrient fluxes for rivers in forested, agriculture, urban, and mixed landscapes. Matthew has a BA degree in Physics from Middlebury College, and recently completed an MS degree at the University of California at Davis, where his research focused on wood dynamics in mountain stream networks.
