Dr. Young completed her Ph.D. in geosciences at Stony Brook University. She holds an M.S. from Stony Brook University and a B.S. from Tulane University. Her dissertation research investigated transport and biogeochemical processing of nutrients in coastal aquifers, with a focus on how groundwater-sourced anthropogenic nitrogen impacts coastal water quality. After completing her Ph.D., Dr. Young accepted a post-doctoral position at the University of Florida investigating how salt water intrusion will impact biogeochemical processing in coastal aquifers.
