Katie Williams – PhD student

Research interests: I study ecosystem approaches to environmental restoration in three “toxic hotspots” designatedas Great Lakes Areas of Concern: St. Louis River (Duluth, Minnesota/Superior, Wisconsin), St. Marys River (Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan/Ontario, Canada), and Milwaukee Estuary. More specifically, I look at how stakeholders and the public participate in the processes of remediating and restoring these degraded areas, as well as the opportunities for creating community around natural resources.
