Congrats, Lyndsie!

February 23, 2017

AEL grad student Lyndsie Collis received the Marianna Russell Technology Grant for technology-related professional development. This $1,000 award allowed her to attend a week-long course hosted by the OSU Trace Element Research Laboratory to receive training on use of the Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometer and Mass Spectrometer. She will use these instruments to analyze algal samples collected from streams in Iceland to test for the presence and concentration of trace elements that may limit the growth of aquatic biofilms.
