Grants for Africa fieldwork!

I am excited to share that I have received two grants for conducting fieldwork in Tanzania this coming summer, one from the UW Center for Global Studies, and one from the Society for Freshwater Science! These grants make it possible for me to travel to Kigoma, Tanzania, to collect Lates specimens from Lake Tanganyika, and to see the lake in-person.

I am honored to be awarded these grants, and can't wait to see the place that I've been reading so much about!
