Fellows Lecture Series: Leigh Ellyn Preston @ SPH Classroom 119/120
Sep 26 @ 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Leigh Ellyn Preston is a DrPH candidate in Epidemiology and Environmental Science at the Texas A&M School of Public Health. Leigh traveled to Quito, Ecuador to research the environmental health infrastructure issues and zoonotic exposures that potentially influence diarrheal disease in urban neighborhoods versus rural neighborhoods. While abroad, Leigh also had a goal to identify barrios on the islands of San Cristobal and Santa Cruz with higher incidence rates of parasitic infections. Come hear about Leigh’s experience and what she learned!

Rachel Adams is a PhD candidate in the Ecosystem Science and Management department. Her research focuses on deep rooting tropical trees in the seasonally dry forests of the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico. With genetics tools and stable isotopes, Adams determined which species can grow deep roots into the caves and how their access to groundwater impacts above ground forest composition and productivity. Come hear about Rachel’s experience and what she learned!

Fellows Lecture Series: Brianna Myre @ BTLR 309
Oct 10 @ 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Brie Myre is a PhD candidate in Biology studying sea turtle feeding physiology during reproduction. Her goal is to use physiology as a tool for conservation, as hormones can inform us about the cryptic behavior of these mysterious creatures. The central focus of Brie’s work is to advise the development of more effective conservation plans to aid Olive Ridley sea turtles in having more and healthier offspring. Come hear about Brie’s experience and what she learned!
