Alanna Lecher, assistant professor of natural and applied sciences in the College of Arts and Science, won a science writing competition to publish a geostory, which chronicles how a previously published research paper influences the thinking and current research of an up and coming scientist, in Nature Geoscience. Her geostory focuses on the marine plastics research she conducted with the help of Lynn’s and will be featured in an upcoming issue. The nature family of journals is the oldest scientific journal family.

She also published a research article, "River and Submarine Groundwater Discharge Effects on Diatom Phytoplankton in the Gulf of Alaska," in the peer-reviewed journal Hydrology. This article evaluated how land-based sources of nutrients affected microbial ecology in the Gulf of Alaska, with an emphasis on species that cause harmful algal blooms, similar to red tides.
