The Odum School Graduate Student Symposium (GSS) is a chance to hear the latest research from the graduate student community and posters by undergrad researchers in the Odum School. It is an interdisciplinary conference including folks from the Integrative Conservation program (ICON) and Interdisciplinary Disease Ecology Across Scales (IDEAS). This great event gives students the chance to present their research to the Odum community.
GSS is capped by a keynote address given by a notable graduate of the program. This year's keynote speaker is Elizabeth Sudduth, MS '04, an assistant professor of biology at Georgia Gwinnett College. Her research focuses on the effects of urbanization on stream water quality and invertebrate communities and the ability of stream and wetland restoration projects to mitigate these impacts.
The 2017 GSS is scheduled for January 27th and 28th. All events will be held in the Odum School of Ecology auditorium and main lobby, and are free and open to all.
