ENV seniors present their research

We are incredibly proud of the three seniors who presented their senior project research at the the 2021 NSS Student Research Symposium. Congrats to André Selino, Tiffani Rushford, and Gabby Mendez!

Due to covid, the annual Natural and Social Sciences Student Research Symposium was held virtually this year. The great thing about the online format is that everyone can enjoy their talks, even if you wouldn’t have been able to make it to campus for the symposium! You can assess them through this moodle page (choose log in as guest if you do not have Purchase credentials).There three talks included a wide spectrum of Environmental Studies-related issues, ranging from harmful algal blooms to avian diversity to stormwater run-off.

Their titles are:
