Laura Beck, Master of Science

The Effect of Temperature and Vegetation on Sound Transmission
Serving Since

Laura grew up in Austin, Texas, where she developed a love for the outdoors. In 2021, she earned her B.S. in Conservation and Restoration Ecology from Utah State University. As an undergraduate, she conducted research to help restore Utah wetlands by looking at the ideal seeding rate and composition of native plant species to outcompete the invasive species Phragmites australis. Before coming to Texas A&M-Kingsville, she spent the year working for Texas Conservation Corps. 

Her research now looks at woody plant encroachment and the resulting effects on temperature and sound propagation across the landscape. 

Outside of work, you can find Laura hiking with her dogs, paddle boarding, and reading.
