The new academic year is starting. We’re happy to have our graduate student Jessica Balerna back from a summer internship in DC. We’ll get the low-down on what she did there! Last year’s post-bacc researcher Andres Santini, after collecting a great dataset here in FL, spent the summer doing a prestigious National Park Service internship in Alaska. He’s still there in the backcountry! Annie Majette, our honors research student, graduated, and we’re happy to have her move into a technician position, and we’re also excited to welcome new PhD student Cassie Campbell, with her already great experience publishing and teaching.
