Durham is a great place to live
This brief tour of Durham in the NY Times gives some sense of how much is going on here. And they didn't even do it during baseball season. I'll also say that 36 hours is not nearly enough time to visit all of the great places to eat in town. But they do mention some of my favorites.
Tim Covino, PhD student of soon-to-be colleague Brian McGlynn, has been awarded an NSF post-doctoral fellowship to work with Emily Bernhardt and I at Duke. Tim's dissertation developed the use of pulsed solute additions to streams to assess nutrient uptake kinetics, and his post-doctoral work will expand the application of these approaches to new systems and new ecological questions. Congratulations Tim and welcome aboard!
Megan Fork, currently my MS student at FIU, and Anna Braswell, who received her MS from the University of Alabama, have both accepted positions in my lab through the Environment Ph.D. program.
