Congratulations, Riley!

An NSF-GRFP win and heading to Stanford

Our honorary graduate student, Riley Juenemann, has had quite a year. It turns out that her first place prize for undergraduate research at the NSF-Simons Center for Quantitative Biology annual symposium in December was just a start. Since then she won her fourth first place prize for best poster at a conference; she saw her first co-authored paper appear in print; she served as a co-organizer for Tulane’s Math for All conference; and now she has won an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. All very well deserved.

Riley will be taking her talents to the west coast next year, but her work at Tulane isn’t finished yet. In the coming weeks we will be publicly releasing her three-year research project: an automated tool for categorizing different types of intracellular transport!
