Summer Research

Summer 2014

 On Campus at Nazareth College with Dr. Stephanie Zamule

Sarah Potter
Hydroponic Remediation of Imidacloprid by Phaseolus vulgaris and associated bacteria
Mirzi Devolgado
Bioremediation of the neonicotinoid insecticide thiamethoxam by Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Pseudomonas putida

Ethan Luta
Hypodonic removal of BPA by phytoremediation with Phaseolus vulgaris over five day time period.

Kim Major
Biodegredatin of Imidacloprid at varying concentrations using Pseudomonas putida

Kathleen O'Donnell and Courtney Taylor
Using varying concentrations of Imidacloprid as a sole nitrogen and carbon source for Pseudomonas

Summer 2013

Jacob Buell
Crowfield Sanctuary, Newark, NY
Jake organized environmental education events, created a trail map using GPS and GIS to prepare a map for the entire sanctuary that is displaced on the information kiosk.  He identified and quantified invasive species, as well as keystone or endemic species within the sanctuary.  Jake also created a trail brochure for the sanctuary containing a checklist of species and also noted their ecological significance.

Summer 2012

Ariel Kubissa with Dr. Stephanie Zamule
Hydroponic removal of BPA by phytoremediation with Phaseolus vulgaris and Trifolium pratense.

Summer 2011

Jenny Scobie


Jenny Scobie assessed twenty-six sites in the streams of the Delaware River watershed to compare the current conditions with data previously obtained by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation form 1972-1992.  She sampled benthic macroinvertebrates using the same protocol as the NYS DEC to sample and calculate indices of stream water quality and habitat health.


Jessica Saville

Jessica Saville was awarded an opportunity to participate in the Ecosystem Restoration through Interdisciplinary Exchange (ERIE) project, a Research Experience for Undergraduate (REU) at the University of Buffalo, sponsored by the National Science Foundation.  In addition to participating in several aspects of stream biology assessment, her research project was "Comparison of Methods Determining Nitrate Concentration in Stream Water."
