In the Student Spotlight: April 6, 2017
Kudos to these students
Do you have a spotlight item to share with the NAU community?
- Out of 13,000 applicants, doctoral student Daniel Sanchez was among 2,000 chosen to receive the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. Sanchez received his undergraduate degree from NAU and has been working as a research specialist for the School of Forestry’s Bat Ecology & Genetics Lab and the Pathogen & Microbiome Institute. Sanchez will undertake his doctoral research with Faith Walker and Carol Chambers in the School of Forestry. His project will use emerging genetic technologies to better understand the diet and population history of the endangered New Mexico meadow jumping mouse for conservation and management of the species. NAU alumni Yordano Eleazar Jimenez studying at Brown University and Ricardo Peterson studying at Stanford also received the award. NAU alum Benjamin Rene Luginbuhl studying at the University of California-Santa Barbara received Honorable Mention.
