FUNDED GRANTS AND RESEARCH AWARDS
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
Grant-in-Aid of Research from Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Society #G201903158412545 ($750 USD)
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.
