Dr Adam Heathcote is the Director of the Department of Water & Climate Change at the Science Museum of Minnesota which includes the St. Croix Watershed Research Station. His team of researchers study the impacts of humans on aquatic ecosystems and how we have significantly altered fundamental biogeochemical processes throughout the Anthropocene.

Dr Heathcote’s research focuses on the synthesis of neo- and paleolimnological techniques, and he directs both an analytical chemistry and radiometric dating laboratory at the Research Station to support these efforts.  Dr Heathcote received his Ph. D. from Iowa State University in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology in 2013 and was a postdoctoral fellow in the Group de Recherche Interuniversitaire en Limnologie at the Université du Québec à Montréal.  

During their IAS Fellowship, Dr Heathcote is collaborating with Professor John Anderson from Geography and Environment.
