As an Interfaces of Global Change (IGC) Fellow, and a doctoral student in the Department of Forest Resources and Environmental Conservation, Tony Timpano studies how increased salinization in freshwater streams can impact macroinvertebrate communities.
Timpano, along with other IGC fellows, presented his research findings at a recent IGC Graduate Research Symposium in Fralin Hall. This annual event highlights the latest research from the program’s graduate student fellows, who come from various disciplines, including biological sciences, entomology, fish and wildlife, biological systems engineering, horticulture, plant pathology, and forest resources and environmental conservation.
Judges observing the student talks throughout the day awarded Tony 1st Place for best presentation. Tony received the 2017 Karen P. DePauw Outstanding Presentation Award at the conclusion of the symposium.
