Jesse Grismer awarded a $20,000 grant by the National Geographic Committee for Research and Exploration

Thursday, May 15, 2014

Congratulations to Jesse Grismer (mentor: Rafe Brown) who just learned that he has been awarded a $20,000 grant from National Geographic’s Committee for Research and Exploration to study population genetics and taxonomic diversity of lizards in differing habitats across the Gobi Desert.  The upcoming Gobi expedition involves an integrative historical component which will include retracing travel routes of famed explorers Nikolai Przhevalsky and Ney Elias using original expedition accounts coupled with modern satellite based imagery and georeferencing tools.
