Ryan Greenway has been selected to receive a Student Research Award from the American Society of Naturalists (ASN) as well as a Rosemary Grant Graduate Research Excellence Award from the Society for the Study of Evolution (SSE).
ASN Student Research Awards support research by student members that advances the goals of the society: the conceptual unification of ecology, evolution, and behavior.
The Graduate Research Award from SSE is named for Rosemary Grant, an eminent evolutionary biologist known for her strong mentorship and training of young evolutionary biologists. Rosemary Grant Awards are to assist students in the later stages of their Ph.D. programs enhance the scope of their dissertation research.
Ryan will be using the funds from these awards to further his investigations of speciation in sulfide spring fishes, particularly the evolution of reproductive isolating barriers such as mitonuclear incompatibilities.
