Biology Students Selected as Eco-DAS FellowsFri, 01/27/2023 - 4:01pm
Biology PhD students Stacy Calhoun-Grosch and River Bryant have been selected as 2023 fellows for the Ecological dissertations in the aquatic sciences program sponsored by the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography and the National Science Foundation. Eco-Das is a highly competitive program that seeks to accelerate the careers of a small, select group of PhD students working in the aquatic sciences. Stacy and River will collaborate with other Eco-DAS Fellows from around the world in Hawaii on research that will ultimately be published in a high-impact journal like Limnology and Oceanography.
Stacy's Eco-DAS project is "Minding the data gaps: examining the parameterization of overlooked functional groups in ecosystems models." River's Eco-DAS project is "Recommendations for utilizing multiple facets of diversity assessment to meet four modern conservation goals in our changing oceans."
