Curriculum Vitae


Michelle Newcomer is a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Climate & Ecosystem Sciences Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. She is a member of the Watershed Function SFA 2.0 Team and her research focuses on analyzing the effects of climate perturbations on hydrological and biogeochemical cycling in hyporheic zones. Her current research links dynamic mechanisms of microbial transformations to larger scale effects driven by climate in the East River, CO, and the Russian River, CA. Michelle completed her PhD in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at UC Berkeley and has a wide range of hydrological interests from stormwater management, low impact development, climate variability, and water quality.
