Spotlight on our Students
The National Science Foundation’s National Research Traineeship at Nebraska is designed to fund up to 23 students within five years, adding 5 students each fall. The Nebraska NRT has funded all the students pictured on the Current Students webpage. Our students come from different backgrounds but share an interest in ensuring the sustainability and resilience of earth’s agro-ecosystems. They bring together their unique life experiences, outlooks and aspirations to break current barriers to solving overriding ecological issues and improving the world now and for future generations. Below, some of our students are spotlighted. Click on their names to read their stories and see how your story can fit at the University of Nebraska. At UNL, your story matters!

Finding her way with remote sensing
Catherine Chan came from New England to Nebraska, looking for a change of pace. She found the more relaxed lifestyle she craved in, of all places, her doctoral program.
Chan is using remote sensing to research plant diversity through the School of Natural Resources on East Campus.
“I’m very glad that I’m on East Campus because it’s such a quiet, relaxing campus,” she says. “It just feels like I can work on what I would like to work on rather than other things.”
