Spring 2020 Graduate Student News

Outstanding Scholarship Award to Shane Stone

Shane Stone earned the 2020 LPL College of Science Graduate Student Award for his accomplishments throughout an extraordinarily productive and successful graduate career. Shane will complete his degree with at least twelve peer-reviewed publications, including a first-author publication in JGR Planets (doi:10.1029/2018JE005559) and another submitted to Science. Shane is entering his sixth year as a graduate student; his advisor, Professor Roger Yelle, notes that the JGR paper is an example of Shane's consistently comprehensive and rigorous analysis as well as his superb communication skills. Although still a student, Shane has established himself in the community of Mars upper atmospheric researchers.
