CNR Doctoral Student Wins National Award from Ecological Society of America

February 14, 2019

College of Natural Resources doctoral candidate Kristina Bartowitz is one of 10 students nationwide selected to receive the Katherine S. McCarter Graduate Student Policy Award by the Ecological Society of America. This award provides graduate students the opportunity to receive policy and communication training in Washington, D.C., and meet lawmakers. Working with her faculty advisor, Tara Hudiburg, Bartowitz studies the interaction between climate, wildfires and ecosystems. Using ecosystem models, she is studying how repeated disturbance and climate change will impact forest composition and structure as well as ecosystem resilience. Bartowitz will travel to the nation’s capital in March to learn about the legislative process and federal science funding, hear from ecologists working in federal agencies and meet with Idaho members of Congress on Capitol Hill
