Dr. Alex Webster (she/her)
I am an ecosystem ecologist interested in the resilience of ecosystems and social-ecological systems to increasing water scarcity and changing hydrologic regimes.
Water drives life across diverse settings. I work in freshwater ecosystems, watersheds, and water infrastructure networks in a variety of land use settings and biomes. This has taken me from desert cities to subarctic forests to agricultural ditches to try to understand and improve interactions between humans and the environment. I'm particularly interested in using large temporally- and spatially-rich datasets to address hypotheses about system resilience, connectivity, and sustainability in the face of climate and land use change.
Advancing equity in STEM education and research practices is integral to my teaching, service, and research approach. See the Teaching, Outreach, and Service page for more.
William Mejía (he/him)
I am a master’s student interested in understanding ecological systems and their vulnerabilities in a changing world.
Before becoming a graduate student at the University of New Mexico, I was working as a field technician at El Yunque Rainforest in Puerto Rico. As drastic changes in ecosystem water availability occur, I am specifically interested in learning more about water resources and their impact & importance in the environment.
Eve Tipps (they/them)
I am a master’s student interested in working at the intersection of community and ecosystem ecology to better understand the impact of climate change on riparian networks.
Before coming joining the University of New Mexico, I’ve spent time assisting research across the east coast. From studying neurodegeneration in dopaminergic neurons at Columbia Medical to collecting pollen and spring forest bees in the Yale-Myers Forest, I hope to integrate my assorted research background into my interest in ecological resilience.
Roan Marion (he/him)
I am a volunteer in the Webster lab. I help with field sight set up and monitoring. My interests include (among many other things) hydrology, microbiology, natural resource management and vertebrate physiology. I am primarily a stay at home dad and spend most of my time supporting my brilliant family.
