Spring 2011 Graduate Student News

Dykhuis awarded NSF GRFP

Melissa Dykhuis, first-year graduate student, has been awarded a NSF Graduate Research Program Fellowship. Melissa's research interests are in solar system dynamics and origins---but she adds that this is "to put it most concisely....I'm interested in lots of stuff!" The proposed fellowship project was titled "Investigating Asteroid-Meteorite Connections: A Spectroscopic Study of the Koronis Region." Melissa says, "But again, I'm interested in lots of stuff, so I don't know if asteroid-meteorite connections will be my thesis work...."

Congratulations, Melissa!
