About Michelle Hoffman

I am a PhD student studying wetland microtopography and its interactions with ecology at the University of South Florida (USF) Dept. of Integrative Biology in Tampa.
A Florida native, I obtained two Bachelor of Science degrees (Geology and Environmental Science) from USF in 2005, followed by a Master of Science degree (Environmental Science, concentrating on island hydrogeology) from the University of Guam (UOG) Water and Environmental Research Institute of the Western Pacific (WERI), a highly ranked USGS research facility.
Recent and ongoing WERI projects can be found at
