Tracking down a tricky nutrient
Fellow studies nitrogen cycling in the York River

Brianna Stanley, a Ph.D. student at VIMS, is studying the sources of urea in the York River and whether algae prefer urea over other forms of nitrogen. Stanley is also studying methods to separate out urea dissolved in water so wastewater treatment plants can find new methods to remove more nitrogen before returning water to the York River.
