Hi, I'm Danelle Haake. I recently completed my PhD at Saint Louis University and will soon take on a new role as Aquatic Scientist and Director of the Illinois RiverWatch Program.
My experience in aquatic ecology began as an undergraduate at Missouri State University, where I joined the Missouri Stream Team program in my freshman year. The Stream Team provided my first true exposure to the complexity of river and stream ecosystems. Soon after, I participated in aquatic ecological research with several members of the Biology faculty. Since then, I have retained and developed my joint passion in aquatic ecological research and the empowerment of citizens with the ecological knowledge and tools needed for informed decision-making.
