Amy Goldman joined the Ecology Group in 2015. Her work focuses on understanding biogeochemical cycling in the groundwater-surface water interaction (hyporheic) zone of the Columbia River. She is a founding member of the Worldwide Hydrobiogeochemical Observation Network for Dynamic River Systems (WHONDRS). Amy also supports a broad range of projects, including those dedicated to environmental remediation and to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
