Congratulations to Dr. Susan Ebeler! She will be awarded the Honorary Research Lecturer this year at the 70th Annual National Conference of the American Society for Enology and Viticulture (ASEV)!
The ASEV website explains, "the honorary research lecturer is granted to an individual with a current national or international reputation in his or her field of research who is also actively involved in scientific research."
Mackenzie Batali is a 2nd year graduate student in FST. She recently learned that she won a spot in the Grad Slam Top 10. The Grad Slam is an annual contest in which master’s and Ph.D. students across UC campuses – in disciplines ranging from hard sciences to humanities – compete to sum up their research for a general audience. Students should present the significance and fundamental points of their work at UC Davis in a clear, direct, and interesting manner.
