Congratulations to Ben Tonelli for NASA FINESST Fellowship

Congratulations are due to Ben Tonelli, 2nd-year PhD student in the Tingley Lab. Ben was notified recently that he has been selected for a 2022 FINESST award (Future Investigators in NASA Earth and Space Science and Technology) from NASA. Similar to the NSF GRFP, FINESST is a 3-year award that will fund Ben’s research for a total of $150,000. Under this award, Ben will be studying how avian pathogens and spillover risk are related to climate and land-use change in an irruptive migratory bird.
