Julian Damashek
Visiting Assistant Professor of Biology Julian Damashek was an invited speaker at the 2024 Mohawk Watershed Symposium, an annual conference on environmental research and policy in the watershed, held this year in Schenectady, N.Y.

Damashek presented data on nitrogen sources and cycling in the Mohawk River and tributary creeks, a student-driven project involving Hamilton students and colleagues at Utica University and the University of North Georgia.

The symposium includes presentations from academic research labs, environmental non-profits, state government agencies, industry, and other stakeholders involved in environmental science, advocacy, and governmental policy related to the river and its watershed.
