Cristina Ríos-Blanco to receive Student International Research Award

During the Global Vision Awards ceremony

During International Week, awards are given to university and community members who have made major contribution to internationalizing our campus. One of the awards is to a graduate student who conducts international research and presents it as a poster. This year, Jane Bell and Gad Perry evaluated the posters presented at the Graduate School poster competition and identified
11 with an international component. The posters represented research conducted in Africa, Asia, Europe, and South America and covered topics including art, biology, economics, education, and human nutrition. The winner this year was Cristina Ríos-Blanco, a doctoral student studying bat ecology in Colombia.
