1. Weily Lang (2011 - Present)
Weily, has been conducting research with me since my hire at LGCC. She is an extremely dedicated student who has blossomed into a focused, responsible researcher over the past three years. This is evident in her most recent win where she placed first in her undergraduate category of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology and won first place at the Divisonal Round at the Sigma XI Research Showcase held between March 18th-23rd. She competed with several 4-year colleges (like Yale). In addition to receiving a certificate she will be featured in Sigma Xi social media and in the American Scientist Magazine and also receive a small cash prize. In addition to Sigma Xi, Weily has attended three other conferences. Weily and I are currently in the process of writing up our research to publish at the Journal of Insect Physiology.
