  • Alison GranthamWhat you miss most about the REU program?: The setting and atmosphere was so nice for focusing on science and making great friends. I loved going for evening runs in the woods and taking weekend hikes and trips with other REUs.
  • What you miss least about the REU program?: The mosquitoes.
  • What about the REU program has stuck with you?: The project I worked on has guided my subsequent career moves, so I guess C and N dynamics and climate implications stuck.
  • Have you stayed in touch with other REU students?: Yup! I'm engaged to fellow HF REU alum, Alex Ireland, and have stayed good friends with Megan Woltz and kept in touch with a few others.
  • What you're up to now?: I'm currently the Research Manager at the Rodale Institute, an organic agriculture nonprofit and exploring options for graduate school.
