Funding for science pretty dry right now, so I'm delighted to make two announcements.
First, my Ph.D. student Maggie Hantak received an Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grant from the National Science Foundation! This is good funding, and a HUGE honor. Most graduate students apply for one of these grants, but few ever get one. Great work, Maggie!!!
Second, my Ph.D. student Charlene Hopkins received funding the Ohio Department of Transportation. This will fund her for two years, and is a large amount of money (posting would feel like bragging, but many professors have never received a grant this big!). Yea for Charlene!!!!
So, congratulations to Maggie and Charlene! We are all very proud of both of you.
