A (belated) Happy New Year from the Rothfels Lab! 

Snowy Wellsvilles Mountain Range

2023 was a big year! We collectively made more than 2800 iNaturalist observations, held the inaugural Intermountain Botanical Foray, and attended Botany2023 in Idaho. 

As we move into 2024, we wanted to take a moment to congratulate lab members and lab alumni who are beginning new and exciting phases of their careers:

Lan Wei began her graduate studies with Erika Edwards at Yale University.

Forrest Freund started as a field biologist with the BLM in Redding, CA.

Jenna Ekwealor began in Jan 2024 as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biology at San Francisco State University.

Carrie Tribble will be taking a faculty and curator position at the University of Washington Department of Biology and the Burke Museum in Fall of 2024.

Joyce Onyenedum is now Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies at New York University.

Congratulations Lan, Forrest, Jenna, Carrie, and Joyce! 

We can’t wait to see what adventures everyone gets up to this year.
