The past month has brought a lot of good news, recognition, and mile-stones for the hard-working graduate students here at the MSC.
First and foremost, a congratulations to a student who made it “across the finish line” and successfully defended their thesis. On April 11th, Catherine Matassa defended her PhD dissertation on how “Ecological context shapes the response of consumer to predation risk”.
Job well done!
Additionally, two graduate students just starting their path to dissertation, Alli Matzelle and Tanya Rogers, were awarded NSF graduate dissertation fellowships. Chris Baillie, Robert Murphy, Jessica Torossian, and former Three Seas student Barbara Spiecker all received honorable mentions.
Last but definitely not least, undergrad Benjamin Moran was awarded a NU Scholars Independent Research Fellowship to work in Dr. Bill Detrich’s lab this summer.
Congratulations to All!
