Stephanie Berg was awarded a prestigious STEM Education Individual Postdoctoral Research Fellowship from the National Science Foundation. She will be joining our research group starting in July 2024 to start her fellowship. Her project will focus on characterizing the identity negotiations of disabled science graduate students. Stephanie earned her PhD in Chemistry at the University of Nebraska Lincoln. We are super excited for her arrival and the work she will be doing! Congratulations (and a warm welcome) to Stephanie!

In June 2023, Mariel had the chance to present a poster at a Gordon Research Conference. The poster was based on her postdoc work looking at how early career researchers (undergrads, postbacs, and grad students) develop a science researcher identity during research training in the natural sciences. Besides presenting research, the chance to learn more about different aspects of undergraduate biology education research and to network with colleagues was awesome!

This last week Mariel traveled back to the University of Mississippi for a second campus visit. It was great to meet with colleagues, learn more about the biology department, and to really start planning for the lab opening in January. We have a great space in the works! Also, check out the UM swag…love it!
