The Candidate Thoughts About His Advisor_3.JPG

Glendon Brian Hunsinger succesfully defended his PhD dissertation on April 16th, 2009.  Glendon did most of his work in the Hudson River.  Throughout his graduate career, he has been awarded not one, but two prestigious graduate fellowships:  a National Estuarine Research Reserve Fellowship as well as a US EPA Greater Research Opportunities Fellowship.

His work highlited the importance of river riparian zones in changing the composition of organic matter that is delivered to the main body of the river. Stay tuned for the publications resulting from his work.
