As this chaotic semester winds to a close, I hope everyone has figured out how to adjust to their new routines. I am excited to report some exciting updates for my student Bailey Howell! Her NSF GRFP project (written in conduction with Josef Uyeda) received an honorable mention! I’ll be excited to see her future proposals as she transitions into graduate school this fall. She was also chosen as the 2020 MUW Outstanding Senior in Biology! She will have her name added to a plaque in the hallway of Parkinson and will get a small gift from the MUW Foundation. Please join me in congratulating Bailey for both of these accomplishments!
