Yu-Ting Chen graduated with a B.Sc. in Geography from the National Taiwan University. Later she went to the University of Reading in England, where she completed her Master’s degree in Environmental Management in 2018. During the studies, she focused on riverine nutrients (e.g. phosphorus and nitrogen) transport, load estimation and high-frequency monitoring data. At the Great Lakes Institute for Environmental Research (GLIER), she is currently working with Dr. Crossman and Dr. Weisener, using real-time technologies to understand biogeochemical cycling and ecological interactions across the river-shoreline-lake interface of the Lake Erie, which is also in collaboration with the Real-time Aquatic Ecosystem Observation Network (RAEON) programme.
