Four CEB students awarded NSF DDIGs!
Congratulations to CEB students Jonathan Mitchell, Benjamin Rubin, Courtney Stepien, and Benjamin Winger who were recently awarded Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grants by the National Science Foundation!
Jonathan Mitchell's research is focused on the paleoecology of birds. He is co-advised by Kenneth Angielczyk and Peter Makovicky.
Benjamin Rubin's research interests include the evolutionary history and genetic basis of acacia-ant mutualisms. His advisor is Corrie Moreau.
Courtney Stepien is interested in understanding the roles of evolutionary history and ecological interactions in the maintenance of high-diversity macroalgal assemblages. Her advisor is Cathy Pfister.
Benjamin Winger studies factors that may affect speciation rates among birds in the northern Peruvian Andes. His advisor is John Bates.
