Jimmy Sustachek – Hasler Lab
I am excited and honored to be a part of such a wonderful academic community here at the CFL. I worked in the LTER Chemistry Lab as an undergraduate student from 2009-2011, and it is great to be back. My previous positions at UW were with the Agroecology Department and the State Lab of Hygiene testing soil and rainwater samples. My interests outside of the lab include music, movies, cooking, fishing, and biking. I look forward to producing high-quality datasets for the LTER program as well as our graduate students’ diverse projects.
Jonathan Lytle – Trout Lake Station
My passion for the Northwoods came at an early age while working with my aunt and uncle, owners of Wildcat Lodge resort in Boulder Junction. I learned about maintaining boats/motors, assisting guests, and fell in love with fishing and hunting. Having been gone for the last 15 years, I am excited to work here at TLS as Facilities Technician III. I keep our fleet of boats, motors, trailers, and field and research equipment ready for spring through fall research season, and assist with cabin and grounds maintenance.
