Dr. Moskalski earned her M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Delaware.  Her dissertation research was about factors influencing sediment transport in the St. Jones River in Delaware.  She completed a post-doctoral research position at the University of South Carolina studying the effects of rainfall on sediment and trace metal mobilization in salt marshes.  Her most recent post prior to Stockton was a post-doctoral fellowship at the Université de Bretagne Occidentale/Institut Universitaire Européen de la Mer in Brest, France, during which she studied sediment flux and decadal-scale change in a small macrotidal estuary.
