Georgie Efegenia Humphries is currently a PhD student at the CUNY Graduate Center’s Earth and Environmental Sciences Department. She currently works with her advisor Dr. Dianne Greenfield at the Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) to examine the complex environmental relationships between global stressors, phytoplankton ecology, and coastal biogeochemistry. Her primary focus as of 2021 is uncovering the linkages between bacterial abundances, nutrient forms and levels, dissolved organic matter, phytoplankton, and water quality parameters. Additionally, Georgie is an adjunct lecturer teaching multiple levels of Environmental Science laboratories at Queens College, where she has also helped coordinate and develop new curriculum for Environmental Science 99. Prior to her work at Queens College and the ASRC, Georgie researched micro and macro-plastic distribution in the Independent Republic of Cyprus before moving on to marine microbiology and oceanography.
