Annie Stoeth is a second year doctoral student in Earth and Environmental Sciences at the City University of New York Graduate Center. She returned to pursue a graduate degree in science after years of working as an environmental educator in New York City and Latin America. Her research focuses on the role of anthropogenic waste in soil ecosystems. She is particularly interested in assessing and quantifying the role of soil fauna in these interactions and hopes to discover potential for bioremediation among edaphic organisms. Her dream is to write science curriculum for students, adults, and families across New York City that brings science education and academic scientific processes into closer accordance.
