Amanda Byrd, who earned a master of science degree at UAF in 2013, will present a lecture Thursday, March 27. The title is "Renewable Energy Science - An interdisciplinary approach to energy solutions."

Amanda Byrd out standing in the (biomass) field.
Byrd will explain how she combined engineering with natural resources management to design a degree specific to her research needs.The results were a degree focused in short rotation woody biomass and a study that provides useful information for communities interested in supplementing their diesel heating with biomass energy.
