Spotlight on BUMP Alumni
Congratulations to Sara Edquist (CAS’08) and Caitlyn Genovese (CAS’08). Sara and Caitlyn, along with BUMP Director John Finnerty and several other authors, had a paper accepted for publication in the Marine Ecology Progress Series. The study arose out of student projects in Prof. Finnerty’s Marine Invertebrates course (BI547). Sara is currently a PhD student at the University of New Hampshire focusing on marine parasitology and aquaculture. Caitlyn is a PhD student at Clemson University studying ecology and evolutionary biology.
