Sarah J Stetson, PhD

Biography

Sarah started her career with the U.S. Geological Survey as a volunteer/contactor/graduate student in Geologic Division where she developed a method for measurement of mercury stable isotopes. After completing a post-doc she returned to Water Mission Area in 2012 to work at the National Water Quality Laboratory where she develops methods in support of the Nutrients and Metals Analytical Services Sections. Her current focus is on methods for analysis of nutrients and trace metals in saline and hypersaline waters.
