Two Students from the Hopkins Lab Receive Prestigious NSF fellowships

Gaëlle Blanvillain (Incoming PhD student) and Valentina Alasaam (recent Hopkins lab Alum) both received Graduate Research Fellowships from the National Science Foundation.  Gaëlle will be joining the Hopkins lab in August and will be studying the effects of land use and climate change on hellbenders.  Gaëlle joins two other current NSF GRF recipients in our lab, Sydney Hope and Brian Case.  Valentina worked in our lab for more than 4 years, and is now studying the effects of urban light on circadian rhythms in songbirds, working with colleague Dr. Jenny Ouyang at the University of Nevada Reno.  Congratulations to Gaëlle and Valentina on this enormous professional accomplishment!!  Well deserved!!
