Dr. Kateri Salk is a Limnologist and Biogeochemist with research experience in field, laboratory, and data analysis settings. To date, my work has focused on management-relevant water quality issues including nutrient cycling, harmful algal blooms, greenhouse gas production, and PFAS contamination. I have worked in the academic and consulting settings, leading efforts in fundamental research and management support for agencies including the Environmental Protection Agency, the International Institute for Sustainable Development, and several state agencies. In my former role as Visiting Assistant Professor at Duke University and in my current role as an Aquatic Ecologist at Tetra Tech, I have managed projects for interdisciplinary teams. I currently specialize in data analytics in the aquatic sciences, including empirical and process-oriented modeling, data management for research teams, course design and instruction, and interactive data dashboard development.
