DDCSP Research Going Beyond the Summer

As a part of her first summer in UM DDCSP, Jannice Newson, a member of the 2016-2017 cohort, conducted research on recirculating aquaculture system management. She performed this research with Dr. James Diana, a Professor of Fisheries and Aquaculture and the Director of the Michigan Sea Grant Program, and Cindy Yao, a SEAS student. This past month, Jannice got the opportunity to share her research at the 5th Annual Black Doctoral Network Conference in Atlanta, GA (October 26-28 2017).

SEAS Alumnus José González Emphasizes Culture and Community at Annual Research Conference

We were excited to host José González, founder and director of Latino Outdoors for our annual DDCSP Research Symposium on on Friday, July 28. He gave an inspiring talk called "Tu Cuentas, Yo Cuento: Leading through an Inclusive Narrative," which delved into his experience creating an organization that brings together Latinx culture with recreation and environmental stewardship.

Watch José's talk here! 

Before José's keynote, our twenty four first year DDCSP scholars presented their research posters to over 100 public attendees. With topics ranging from forest dynamics, harmful algal blooms, soil fertility, and impacts of climate change on human communities, the poster session represented the diverse array of emerging topics in the environmental field that these students are passionate about!
