FUNDED GRANTS AND RESEARCH AWARDS
Here are my successful grant and award applications.
ESTABLISHING A BIPOC SEMINAR SERIES THROUGH THE EASTERN NORTH CAROLINA AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY LOCAL CHAPTER
ACS Committee on Environmental Improvement and Committee on Local Section Activities 2020 Mini-Grant For Sustainability Programming ($500 USD)
This mini-grant provides funds to start up a seminar series to highlight diversity in chemistry by highlighting research conducted by BIPOC chemists.
UNDERSTANDING THE EFFECTS OF GRAZING ON CYANOHAB TOXICITY
This proposal focuses on quantifying grazing effects on microcystin production in Lake Erie as well as quantifying grazing rates.
USING STABLE ISOTOPES TO IDENTIFY FERTILIZER-DERIVED NITROGEN (N) ASSIMILATION IN MICROCYSTINS
Kenan Graduate Student Award - Kenan Foundation, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill ($2,500 USD)
This proposal looks to identify preferential uptake of inorganic or low-molecular-weight organic nitrogen species into cyanobacterial biomass or cyanotoxins during cyanoHABs using 15N, a stable isotope of N, as a tracer.
