National Geographic and Fulbright

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Arctic SIZE postdoc Brandon Hassett was recently awarded a Young Explorer’s Research Grant from National Geographic to explore the relevance of Fungi in the Arctic Ocean.  Between the research efforts of Arctic SIZE and the extent of the National Geographic family, Brandon’s work has the potential to bridge these two science entities.  Additionally, Brandon was recommended to be a Fulbright scholar to spend six months generating a field guide of Fungi.  Final placements pending, 2019 is shaping up to be an exciting year for Brandon and the SIZE group.
