Ashley Smyth, PhD, University of Florida


Are oysters the solution to our pollution problems?

Ashley is an Assistant Professor in the Soil & Water Sciences Department, located at the Tropical Research and Education Center, in Homestead, just south of Miami. Ashley has a PhD in Marine Science from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and was a postdoc at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science and University of Kansas before joining the UF faculty in 2017. Ashley’s interest in biogeochemistry began during her time as REU at the Academy of Natural Sciences.

Ashley’s research focuses on how anthropogenic activities impact nutrient cycling in coastal and aquatic ecosystems. Her research centers around where the land meets the water and how activities on land connect to ecosystems in shallow nearshore waters. She has worked extensively on quantifying the nitrogen removal benefits of oyster reef restoration and shellfish aquaculture.
