Congratulations to Aaron Potkay, a PhD student in EPS, in receiving the prestigious Pathfinder Fellowship from the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science, Inc. ( CUAHSI)! The fellowship supports US grad students to travel to another site/institution to collaborate with leading scientists. This fund will support Aaron to spend the summer working with Prof John Sperry, a world leader on plant physiology-ecology, at the University of Utah. Aaron builds mathematical models on water transport in lichens and higher plants, and associated biochemical processes, to understand how plants cope with water stress and how land ecosystems function in an ever-changing world.
