Mariel Pfeifer, a first-year PhD student in the Khang lab, received an NSF GRFP Fellowship for her STEM Education and Learning research proposal. Mariel received her B.S. in Microbiology and B.A. in Biology/Secondary Education from the University of Wyoming. At UGA, Mariel pursues both biology education and bench research. Her biology education research focuses on the experiences of students with disabilities in STEM courses. Her bench work focuses on the dynamics of mitotic nuclear migration in the rice blast fungus, Magnaporthe oryzae. Mariel is co-advised by Dr. Chang-Hyun Khang in the Department of Plant Biology and Dr. Julie Stanton in the Department of Cellular Biology.
