Grad Student Achievements

In 2012-2013, thirty-nine EEB grad students submitted progress reports (1st years do not submit a report).  This is what they self-reported:

  • 59 papers published since their last progress reports (in peer-reviewed, international journals, some very high profile; there is some overlap with multi-authored UT authors);
  • 93 presentations given at local, national and international conferences/workshops;
  • $334,796 in grants/fellowships awarded in 12-13 (not counting fellowships awarded in previous years but still funding their research);
  • 3.5 service/outreach activities each, on average (including judging science fairs, manuscript reviews for journals, local events-Darwin Days, Boo at Zoo, etc., talks to the public, press interviews-Knox News, WBIR, Daily Beacon, Today Show, Orlando News Sentinel, blogs, etc.).

We haven’t quantified service/outreach before and it looks like most of our students do something, some of them quite a lot!

It’s great to see our grad students succeeding on so many levels, and sharing their expertise with others.
