The magnificent Grand Tetons viewed from Yellowstone Lake
I am incredibly excited to join a team of wonderful scientists studying the thermal tolerance of vulnerable, endemic stoneflies only found in glacial meltwater high up in the Grand Teton of Wyoming. The lead PI is Scott Hotaling, who is trying to establish these delicate glacial ecosystems as long-term ecological monitoring sites so that they can be monitored and protected.
I'm excited to have been selected as one of 7 contestants for the Ray Huey Award for best student talk. My talk is the first in the line up, so I will be kicking off the session (yikes)! Come check out my talk on Jan 4th at 8:00AM. I will be sharing the results of part of my DDIG experiments that were conducted over the past several months. Here is my talk abstract.
