How do scientists go from OMG to PhD? How do they turn their passion for science into their profession? What advice do they have for future scientists?
If you are a 5th-12th grade student, undergraduate, teacher or parent, join us to ask these questions and more in a Q&A session with our weekly Seminar speakers.
Peggy Lehman received her PhD in Ecology from the University of California at Davis. She has conducted field and laboratory research on phytoplankton ecology in the upper San Francisco Estuary for nearly 40 years. Her research includes open water, floodplain, and wetland habitats. Over the past 15 years, in collaboration with university and agency colleagues, her research has focused on the harmful cyanobacteria blooms in the Delta. She is considered a state expert on cyanobacteria and has published widely on many aspects of the bloom. Her most current publication in the journal Frontiers in Aquatic Microbiology describes the use of genetic techniques to characterize the plankton communities that co-occur with the toxic cyanobacteria Microcystis. In addition to this research, she recently led a team of scientists in the development of a collection of 35 scientific papers on the estuary for young people with the journal Frontiers for Young Minds.
