Graduate School honors master's thesis for NRM's Joseph Drake
Texas Tech University's Graduate School recently recognized work displayed in students' theses and dissertations for the annual 2016 awards, funded in part by the Helen Jones Foundation.
Officials with Tech's College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources report that Joseph Drake, a graduate student from Brown County in the Department of Natural Resources Management, was honored with a second place award for his master's thesis in the math, physical sciences and engineering category.
The title of his thesis was, "The role of isolation in Sonoran Desert water site connectivity based conservation strategies." He was nominated by Kerry Griffis-Kyle, an associate professor of wetland ecology.
The Graduate School recognizes theses and dissertations of mathematics, physical sciences, engineering and social sciences in even numbered years, and biological life sciences, humanities and fine arts in odd years.
This year the first-place dissertation award winners will be entered into the Council of Graduate School's annual CGS/ProQuest Distinguished Dissertation Award competition, which honors the dissertations that represent original work and significant contributions to the discipline being considered for the year. Students are nominated by their faculty representatives.
