Karyna Rosario is a second-year Ph. D. student at the College of Marine Science at the University of South Florida. She completed her master’s degree in Environmental Science at the University of Arizona and her bachelor’s degree in Microbiology at the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez Campus. Her current Ph. D. project deals with the microbial quality of reclaimed water which is an important alternative water supply. Karyna is also interested in aquatic microbial ecology and viruses. Aquatic virology is a field that is in its infancy; nevertheless, viruses are an important component of the microbial loop in aquatic food chains.
- Phytoremediation/Microbial community changes during plant establishment at a mine tailings site.
- Limonology/Bacterial respiration in rivers and lakes.
- Marine science/Biological function of dimethylsulphoniopropionate (DMSP) in macroalgae.
- Marine science/Water quality.
Current Research: Marine Science and Water quality/Viral communities in water resources.
Future Research: Microbial communities in different environments. After finishing graduate school, I would like to work in a federal labororatory (e.g. EPA, USDA).
Academic Preparation: BS/Industrial Microbiology, MS Environmental Science (Microbiology), PhD student Biological Oceanography (Microbiology).
Nov 11th update: Congratulations to Dr. Karyna Rosario for recently defending her PhD at the USF College of Marine Science!
