Excellence in Undergraduate Research

IMG_1805Congratulations to our two wonderful undergraduate researchers, Michelle Lin and Melanie Kao, who presented their research this week in the annual competition for students in the Ayala School.  They did wonderfully well – in part because they were mentored by a fantastic graduate student, Daniel Winkler in their projects.  Michelle worked on a project looking at the ecophysiological responses of a rare alpine plant from Baja California to warming and drought, while Melanie worked on evaluating population differences in Sahara Mustard seed dynamics and growth across the southwestern U.S.  I’m terribly proud of both of these students!
