Amanda Suchy, PhD is an urban and wetland ecologist who is interested in how urban water bodies (streams, wetlands, lakes) affect nitrogen cycling in cities. She received her PhD in Biology at Arizona State University in 2016 where she examined nitrogen cycling in accidental urban wetlands in Phoenix, Arizona. She is currently a postdoctoral research associate with the CUNY Advanced Science Research Center, where she will continue to research biogeochemistry of urban environments while working in the Baltimore Ecosystem Study.
