Dr. Wolin is an environmental scientist who specializes in the use of diatoms as bioindicators. Her research interests and publications have been involved with understanding the natural variation in freshwater ecosystems and the extent to which human activities have altered them. She uses a combination of modern diatom assemblage data, paleolimnological techniques, and quantitative environmental reconstruction to estimate past conditions and natural variability, to identify disturbances in aquatic/wetland ecosystems, and to determine rates of change and recovery.
