Nick Christensen, a first-year PhD student working with Ryan Morrison’s lab, has been named a Fellow of the Southwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (CASC). Southwest CASC’s mission is to “…develop actionable science and implementable climate adaptation solutions in partnership with natural and cultural resource managers, policy makers, Native Nations, and researchers across the Southwest.”

This is a competitive fellowship, with only seven recipients in the region.  It’s an impressive accomplishment, coming so early in Nick’s PhD career. Congratulations to Nick!
