Ph.D. student and Grace Jordan McFadden Professors Program scholar, Gwen Hopper, is a recent recipient of the Margaret A. Davidson Graduate Fellowship sponsored by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Office for Coastal Management (NOAA). The Margaret A. Davidson Fellowship is a two-year program that provides graduate students the opportunity to conduct collaborative research at one of the 29 protected national estuarine research reserves across the nation.
Through a research project, Hopper, whose research focuses on analytical environmental chemistry, will help scientists and communities understand coastal challenges that may influence future policy. Hopper's research will be conducted at the North Inlet-Winyah Bay research reserve.
At coastal sites like the Winyah Bay reserve, innovative research and community engagement align to create transformative advances in science.
