2017 ESA Lucy Braun Award

This is some crazy news, not only because I won it, but because it took them 10 months to tell me that I did. I am happy to announce that I won the 2017 Ecological Society of America’s Lucy Braun award for best student poster at the 2017 Annual Meeting in Portland, Oregon (all the way back in August 2017). There is always so much amazing student research that gets presented at these conferences, to be honored with this award is truly a highlight of my scientific career. I will be so giddy when I accept the award at the 2018 ESA Annual Meeting in New Orleans this August.

This research highlighted my work on saltwater intrusion into the Everglades, specifically how a stress (salt) and subsidy (Phosphorus) respond in tandem to affect marsh ecosystem processes. This manuscript is currently in review, and I will hopefully have some neat things to share soon in the future. You can read the press release and a little write up about the work here: https://www.esa.org/esa/esa-announces-the-recipients-of-the-2017-student-awards/

Until then, here is a #tbt me presenting the poster last August!
