Senior Emily Fedders wins student research award at international conference

Emily Fedders, a senior Geology major with a Quantitative Geoscience concentration, won an Outstanding Student Presentation Award (OSPA) at the 2018 American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting, a premier international geoscience conference. Emily presented her honors thesis research, in which she employs a numerical model to simulate exchange of dissolved salt between Boone Creek and its adjacent floodplain. This work was conducted under the supervision of Professor and Chair Dr William Anderson. Only about 5% of all student presentations are awarded an OSPA, and Emily competed against other undergraduate and even graduate students from across the world, making this an especially impressive achievement. Congratulations, Emily!
