Research Group - Quantitative Ecology, Digital Natural Resources
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 received his 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.
