Deb Repert has worked with the USGS since 1998 as a microbiologist focusing on nitrogen cycling processes in aquatic environments. She is interested in the physical, chemical and microbiological processes controlling the transport and fate of nutrients in both pristine and contaminated environments. She received an undergraduate degree in Biology from Clarkson University and a Master's degree in Zoology with an emphasis in microbiology and stream ecology from Michigan State University.
