Dr. Jake Hosen uses high frequency sensors to study how
microbes and environmental change influence ecosystem functions and water
quality. Before joining the Department of Forestry & Natural Resources, he
was a postdoctoral associate at the University of Florida and Yale University.
In his previous positions, Jake worked with a national team to study how
microbial metabolism stabilizes water quality in river networks. Dr. Hosen as a
B.Sc. from the College of William & Mary in Chemistry and Biology and a
Ph.D. in Behavior, Ecology, Evolution & Systematics from the University of
Maryland. In his position at Purdue, Dr. Hosen will leverage internet of things
technology to deploy environmental sensors networks that will provide real-time
sensing for predictive ecosystem models.
