Seth McCullough is an undergraduate at Eastern Washington University who is pursuing a double major in Environmental Science and Biology. Growing up in Tennessee He spent a lot of time in the woods, which sparked his interest of the outdoors and in learning how ecological communities influence one another. While obtaining his Associates degree, from Roane State Community College, he was introduced to scuba diving. He has had the opportunity to dive in Tennessee, Florida, Washington, and the Dutch Antilles. He was able to work on coral restoration with the coral restoration foundation in Bonaire and conducted fish surveys for REEF’s volunteer fish survey project. These experiences influenced his interest in coastal marine ecosystems. His interests and research focuses are on restoration ecology and how climate change is affecting relationships within ecologic communities. He is a research assistant in Dr. Bastow’s lab working on EWU’s prairie restoration project. The main research question they are investigated is how prairie restoration and biochar amenities effect carbon sequestration within the soil. He hopes that one day his research will persuade policy makers and will contribute to the fight against climate change.
