research conf
Jordan Giese and faculty advisor, Dr. T. Wayne Schwertner

Jordan Giese, who recently finished his master’s degree in Tarleton’s Wildlife, Sustainability and Ecosystem Sciences program, received honors for the best oral presentation in the Animal Science Division at the 6th International Conference for Young Researchers. Jordan’s research on the environmental factors that limit the reproduction the White-tipped Dove will help the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department maintain stable populations of the bird. Jordan’s faculty mentor is Dr. Heather Mathewson. Jonathan Baker, an undergraduate student in the university’s Department of Animal Science and Veterinary Technology, also presented at the conference.

“We are extremely proud of Jordan and Jonathan for conducting the kind of quality research that merits international attention and honor,” said Dr. Barry Lambert, Associate Vice President for Research and Dean of Tarleton’s College of Graduate Studies. “They represented Tarleton well and had opportunities to connect with like-minded young scientists from several European countries during the conference.” Source

Student Spotlight: Neha Gulati

Neha dreamed of being an international student since she was young. She commented, “I always wanted to move out of my country. It is not that I hated India, it is just that I wanted to be independent.” Neha wanted a graduate degree that would add to her experience and allow her to explore her interest, and decided to pursue Tarleton State University’s MBA program in 2015. Neha has since completed her degree requirements and will graduate with the class of May 2017. Learn more about her in this week’s student spotlight.
