About Keli

Keli Goodman is the Research Lead of the NEON Aquatics Team, which is comprised of the Aquatic Instrument System (AIS) and the Aquatic Observation System (AOS), designed to enable data users to detect long-term ecological change of aquatic ecosystems. The NEON Aquatics team conducts continental-scale monitoring of hydrology, biology, and chemistry, using continuously monitoring sensors in coordination with standardized observational sampling in streams, rivers, and lakes. While managing and working for the NEON Aquatics Program since 2010, Keli has been responsible for developing and implementing the aquatic biogeochemical sampling design and standard operating procedures for measuring surface water chemistry, stable isotopes, greenhouse gases, and reaeration as part of the NEON AOS effort to quantify ecosystem biogeochemical cycles and fluxes.

Keli earned her Ph.D. in Ecology from the Utah State University in Logan, UT, a M.S in Biology from the University of North Carolina, Greensboro, and graduated cum laude from Virginia Tech with a B.S. in Biology. Her research interests include biogeochemical fluxes across aquatic and terrestrial boundaries, carbon and nutrient cycling, metabolism, and the extent to which a changing environment impacts these processes.
