Ryan McClure is a graduate student studying freshwater ecosystem ecology in the Carey Lab. He is particularly interested in examining the effects of lake mixing on nutrient cycling and food webs in lentic ecosystems. Ryan is the Western Virginia Water Authority Fellow, providing insight on management decisions for Roanoke’s drinking water. Prior to coming to Virginia Tech, Ryan spent several years studying streams in Montana, Trinidad, and Iceland but he is very excited to now be working in the beautiful mountain reservoirs of Virginia.
