CSUN Biology students win NSF support for graduate school

Two Biology Master’s students have been selected for the National Science Foundation’s highly competitive Graduate Research Fellowship, which provides three years of financial support for research conducted in pursuit of a master’s or doctoral degree. Danielle Barnas and Robert Dellinger, both working with Associate Professor of Biology Nyssa Silbiger, won the award with proposed research in marine ecology. Dellinger is developing work studying the interacting effects of multiple stressors in marine systems, and Barnas is focusing on the responses of coral reef communities to environmental change and restoration efforts.
