ES alumnae news

Hi, folks –

            Just a quick note about two recent ES alums!

            First, Danielle (Bates) Haulsee won best student talk award at the recent American Fisheries Society Meeting — Mid-Atlantic Chapter.  It was her first conference presentation.  The title of her talk was pretty cool:

“Incorporating Acoustic Telemetry, Satellites and Underwater Robots to Understand Fish Movements and Species Assemblages in the Mid-Atlantic Bight."

            Second, Wendy (Dow) Piniak just defended her dissertation and received her PhD in sea turtle behavioral ecology from Duke University.  She is starting a NOAA Knauss fellowship this month.  Yahoo!

            I hope that Danielle and Wendy will both be guest speakers in ES 306 Marine Ecology this spring!

            Take care! – John
