Bella and Mandy have both headed off to start PhD programs. Bella will be working in the lab of Dr. Jill Baron at Colorado State University, on a project related to biogeochemistry and aquatic ecosystem ecology. Mandy will be working in the lab of Dr. Romuald Lipcius at the Virginia Institute of Marine Science. Mandy’s project will focus on blue crab conservation and predator-prey interactions in marine communities. We’re sad to see them go, but know that they’re off to great things!
