Jeff is named as a fellow for the 2015 Rising Environmental Leaders Program by the Stanford Woods Institute. Jeff is one of 20 fellows selected from a competitive field of applicants to learn firsthand about how to apply science to policy-making. The signature event in the program is its D.C. Boot Camp, a week where participants are introduced to a broad range of legislative staff, NGO leaders, and advocacy directors to more deeply understand how they can contribute in the policy-making process.
Jeff published a review article in the Journal of Great Lakes Research. The article, entitled "Challenges in tracking harmful algal blooms: A synthesis of evidence from Lake Erie", reviews the state of the science on identifying harmful algal blooms in the literature. The review finds that consensus on harmful algal blooms is lacking, raising questions about the evidence base used to develop predictions of future bloom occurrence. The press release for the paper can be found here. This is Jeff's second first-author paper.
