It’s Field Sea-Sun!

It’s going to be a busy summer at UGAMI!  Last week, we hosted our annual barbecue to welcome our summer visitors.

Drs. John Schalles (Creighton) and Steve Pennings (UH) are back for another summer, as are graduate students Matt Pierce (UGA), Harrison Currin (GSU), and Tommy Pudil (GSU) . 

We also have a group of interns joining us to work with GCE investigators. They hail from institutions across the US including Creighton University, University of Houston, University of South Carolina, Eckerd College, and University of North Florida.

We are also looking forward to the arrival of a new cohort of students for UGA’s Coastal Summer Semester, who will be here this weekend along with Drs. Emlyn Resetarits and Charles Hopkinson. We’re looking forward to a productive summer, and it feels great to see so many new (and returning!) visitors.
