Environmental Sciences Ph.D. Program

Kathryn Barto, ES PhD program graduate, joins faculty at Xavier University

Dr. Kathryn Barto, a 2008 graduate of the ES Ph.D. program, landed a tenure-track faculty job in the Department of Biology at Xavier University. She spent the last three and a half years at the Freie-Univeristat, Berlin, doing postdoctoral research on the ecology of mycorrhizal fungi. Kathryn was advised by Don Cipollini in the Department of Biological Sciences, and becomes the first graduate of the program to have landed a faculty position. She will start her new position in August, and we look forward to having her back in our neck of the woods.

Congratulations to Kathryn!
