Grad Student Megan Konar Selected as a 2010 Association for Women in Science Predoctoral Award Winner
Grad Student Megan Konar has been selected as a 2010 Association for Women in Science (AWIS) Predoctoral Award winner for her studies in the field of Engineering. The AWIS is the largest multi-discipline scientific organization for women in the U.S. dedicated to "achieving equity and full participation of women in all fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)." Megan's current research interests are in the field of ecohydrology, which seeks to better understand the interactions between hydrology, vegetation and climate. In particular, she said, "I am interested in exploring how changes in global freshwater resources under a changing climate will impact the various systems that rely on these freshwater resources. For my PhD dissertation, I will analyze the projected impacts of climate change on the global virtual water trade network."
Congratulations to Megan on a well-deserved honor!
