CSUMB students shine at SACNAS

Thirteen CSUMB students took part in the annual conference of the Society for the Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in Science, which this year took place in San Antonio, Texas.

Three of them took top honors: Timothy Fuller, a senior marine science major, received the top prize in the general ecology category. He studies thermal adaptation in the European green crab.

Sean Windell and Mary McCormick, graduate students in the Applied Marine and Watershed Science program, were awarded first- and second-place honors, respectively, for their oral presentations in marine science. Windell’s work examined the value of habitat diversity in marine reserves; McCormick studied intertidal foraging habits of fished and protected spiny lobsters.

The science department at CSUMB has been growing some amazing talent, and they continue to impress. Go Otters!
