CCU student wins SEERS poster presentation award
LaLumia is a junior Honors student from Moorestown, N.J. She has been working on this project with her research advisor, Eric Rosch, Ph.D., a senior lecturer in the Department of Marine Science, since the beginning of her freshman year at CCU. Her research showed how impacts relating to coastal development can alter the behavior of important beach organisms, but also that these impacts must be assessed in conjunction with environmental factors. Her results have implications for the health and sustainability of beach habitats.
SEERS is a nonprofit educational organization dedicated to the informal exchange of interdisciplinary information related to estuarine and coastal habitats of the southeastern United States, primarily in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.
