Lecher Lab Members

Dr. Alanna Lecher

Principal Investigator

Dr. Alanna Lecher is an associate professor of environmental studies and scientific literacy at Lynn University in Boca Raton, FL.  She has a strong commitment to undergraduate research and designs her projects to be accessible to undergraduate students within the natural science majors at Lynn University.  Her projects span the fields of oceanography, earth science, and human-environment interactions and can be viewed in more depth on the projects page.  In addition to each project being scientifically rigorous, each of Dr. Lecher's projects are inspired by a need to understand the world for those living in it to become truly sustainable.  Prof. Lecher is always recruiting new undergraduate students to participate in projects, and students can visit her office hours (Assaf 103c) or send her an email (alecher@lynn.edu) to learn more about current opportunities.  Dr. Lecher is also the academic program coordinator at Lynn University and students interested in that major are encouraged to contact her.
