Entomological Society of America names winners of 2013 student travel grants
Date:9/11/2013

ia's Department of Entomology, working under the auspices of Dr. Kerry Oliver. A native of New Orleans, Stephanie has been enjoying Georgia's hospitality for eight years at this point, as she earned her BS in biology at Emory University in Atlanta with the aid of a Robert W. Woodruff merit scholarship. Stephanie's primary area of research is on mobile genetic elements in facultative defensive bacteria in aphids, with a side line in the biology of host-sharing by multiple mutualist species. Apart from her research, Stephanie is the current UGA representative to the Southeastern Branch of the ESA's Student Affairs Committee, and she chairs the subcommittee on student symposia. In 2011, she acted as team captain for the ESA Student Debates' Overall Best Debate Team. In 2012, she was a member of UGA's Linnaean Games team when they won the national championshipshe will never live down the fact that she forgot Jeff Goldblum's name when ringing in to answer a question about The Fly. Stephanie has previously won competitive funding for research and travel from the UGA graduate school, the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, and the NextBio Corporation. She was also recently named the UGA Entomology Department's PhD student of the year, and has presented her graduate work at eight professional conferences. When not at either the computer or the lab bench, Stephanie enjoys collecting books and performing dangerous cooking experiments.

MIA PARK, a PhD candidate at Cornell University's Department of Entomology, is following through on a career that began as a child exploring a fascination with nature. Completing her degree next summer is the icing on the cake of previous layers of study: a BS in environmental studies from University of California, Davis, and an MS in natural resources from Cornell University. Mia's research work is motivated by a passion for insect conservation and a commitment to promote wise management of our natural resources
